Just got an AVG block for IDP.ALEXA.51 for a threat in the Nexus-Ultimate.exe. I did an online search (seems possibly false positive for some game apps) and searched here, but cannot find anything directly related to the Dock software.

Does anyone have any info? I can either quarantine or allow an exception.

Thanks

ETA, software was purchased and downloaded from this site.

Provided it was downloaded from the Winstep web site, the file is safe.

Either way, for complete peace of mind just upload the nexus-ultimate.exe executable file to VirusTotal. That's like 60 different AV engines dissecting a single file.

Sometimes you might get one or two false positives from the less reputable engines, but if that is all you get then it's a false positive for sure.

Thank you, i will try that. Should I upload the actual RUN file located in the C: program files or the installation file or both?

You can upload the setup file if you want, but Avast only flagged nexus-ultimate.exe so that is what you should upload. :)
