Anti-virus alerts

My anti-virus software says your software contains a virus …

… trojan, spyware, adware, or malware


No Nasties – 100% Clean Software

Rest assured that all software from Sentient Trader is completely free from Spyware, Viruses, and other unwanted invasions.

Sentient Trader and the Hurst Cycles indicators for MetaTrader 4 are guaranteed to be free from viruses, spyware, adware, malware, or anything of that nature.

Our software contains no trojans, no nag screens; no advertisements; no payments and no spying.

We have been selling software to professional traders since 2010 and have  established a reputation for developing high quality financial analysis software. Our software is used by private traders, hedge fund managers, and banks worldwide. Review our testimonials.

All the software that we distribute is digitally signed. This guarantees that the software was produced by us and has not been tampered with or changed. If our signed software is changed in any way, e.g. by a virus, then the code signing certificate becomes invalid on that software.


Spurious Reporting and Listings

False Positives

A “false positive”, also known as a “false alarm”, occurs when anti-virus, spyware protection, anti-keylogging, or anti-hacking software detects a legitimate and trusted program, folder, or file as a problem, when in fact there is no threat.

Our software installers have in the past been incorrectly flagged (never our actual software, but there is always a first time). Please contact us if you observe any program that provides spurious reports that our software is a threat. We will then immediately contact the program developers so they can fix the error in their program as soon as possible. We also encourage you to do the same.

The reality is that we are a small software company, and our requests to anti-virus companies often fall on deaf ears, but we do follow up on every false positive that is reported.
