I once had a Word document I couldn't send because it got caught by an antivirus scanner.
How did I solve it? I changed one byte in it in a hex editor. Then all of a sudden it wasn't a malicious file when it was obviously teeming with viruses before.

But there are probably things that are more likely to be triggered. Like, perhaps, non-standard compilers, etc.
Sure, but it's pretty secretive what detection methods antivirus use and it's not Dege's job to divine what those are.
I wonder what would happen if everyone who had problems with bad AV definitions would take that up with the people that write AV software rather than random developers of other software.
You shouldn't have AV software on your gaming computer anyway, because you shouldn't be handling sensitive information on your gaming computer. Yes I know that's often unrealistic.
