Getting Warning message when opening Platform. Want to get rid of it.

I am new to this. I installed the Portable Apps Platform on my USB and installed about a dozen programs I use, also on the USB, from within the platform program by placing checks in the boxes. They seem to all have installed properly and open just fine.

But every time I open the Platform program by clicking on start.exe (I believe that is its name), I get a Warning message which says that my autorun file has been changed by possible malware, so I should run an AV program. I ran the Clam Av and other AV programs I have (Malwarebytes, etc.) and there are no infections.

I would like to get rid of the Warning message, which appears every time I open the Platform. Please tell me what I should do.

Thanks,
Menomena

One fix?

Open the autorun.inf file as a text file or via something like Notepad+++

[Autorun]
Label=PortableApps.com

Is what is should say in it. If not you can change to that. and save but make sure you save it back as autorun,inf

Platform's Autorun modification setting

This is due to the platform's built-in autorun modification check. You can disable it by following the instructions listed here under the heading "Autorun Modification Detection"
