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
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.
