Hi Rob,
I just restarted Strokes and it asked to do an update, so I let it, but then I see that Symantec blocked the setup file as a virus. Any ideas?

No idea, nothing has changed on my end.

But I do see that apparently other people have posted about these false positives (in general, not specifically S+):

https://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/heuradvmlb-how-disable-detections

Though it's pretty easy to see how it could be flagged since S+ runs with elevated privileges, has low-level mouse and keyboard hooks installed, and the UIAccess flag enabled.

It essentially could look very much like a trojan virus or malware due to the number of potentially suspicious activities necessary for S+ to function.

I just ran the setup file through VirusTotal and this online virus scanner; they both came back as clean.
