About UPX-compression of EXE-files there are different views. It is a fast loading from disk against a optimal memory consumption. Most of my programs (except those the are allways in memory f.e. PopMenu and AutoText) are compressed using the latest version of UPX and can easily be unpacked at any time with the command: "upx.exe -d program.exe".
That could be the reason why some virus scanners report "viruses" and "malware" for the ZIP files offered for download on these pages ...
As the sole programmer of both the WEB page and all programs made available here for free, I can guarantee that they do not contain any "viruses" or "malware" and that such messages are just false alarms and pure nonsense ...
Skeptics can use the current checksum (hashes) file: SHA-256 of all the ZIP-files on these pages to check the downloaded files for manipulation by others ...
Comments and suggestions are welcome ...
