Yes, nearly every release we have a handful of "Security Solutions" that 
heuristically match some patterns in our package. In those cases the best 
thing you can do to help us is to send a message to the producer of your "Anti 
Virus" Software asking them to confirm that it is a false positive and update 
their signatures.

They usually react pretty quickly.

I guess the fact that Gpg4win contains Cryptography is enough these days to 
match some parts of malware that include the same crypto algorithms for 
malicious purposes. Though sometimes their results just feel random.
