got a new windoze machine and went to download poseray and it's telling 
me that it's infected with a virus!!!

couple of weeks ago i downloaded latest version and it downloaded fine 
and i've been running it under wine on my nix machine. thinking it might 
be my windoze machine av and/or ie blocking it so i went there on my nix 
machine using firefox and get the same message

the first two entries in older version list also give the virus notice 
so i stopped there

inquiring minds wanna know??

What's telling you? Which AV prog?

povwin-3.7-agpl3-setup.exe downloaded fine for me.

Most likely a false positive from Google drive that is hosting the file.
Just got the same warning.
