I see there are 3

The main one:
http://electrum.org/download.html
Flatfly's:
http://dre.natverk.org/elecwin.htm
Slush's:
http://electrum.bitcoin.cz/download/

The main one started without installing.
Flatfly's installed python and some other stuff, looked a little nicer but was essentially identical. The "theme" submenu bug was fixed.
Slush's seems to be identical to the main version.

I ran all 3 through virus total, both the main version and slush's gave the following report:

SHA256:    9e4cb3b64805356383efb5091f3b758eaedef69185ce59ca7c613677b6a84bb8
File name:    slush's - electrum-20130212-4a0c70dafa.exe

Never heard of "the hacker" or K7 antivirus, and i got no idea why one version of trendmicro would say its a trojan and not the other. Either way flatfly's version must be different enough not to trigger this (non-portable?). Is there any real difference between the versions? Which one is actually audited by other programmers?

Slush's build is the official one, so there are only two options.

FlatFly's latest version is not totally up-to-date I would recommend the official build at this point.
