As I said on IRC, I think that you should add something about it on FAQ ( mainly Windows FAQ )
I had to make an excitation of %AppData%\Roaming\Bitcoin / bitcoin.exe on Microsoft Security Essential to make it working correctly ( bitcoin )
I don't know if it only a MSE problem, but it can be easily a problem with all antivirus.

So I think that it will a good idea to add something about antivirus on official FAQ Smiley

EDIT for Linux:

<+PovAddict> ...and if you use Linux (and you trust not to get a power outage in the middle of a database write), I suggest libeatmydata to disable fsync on bitcoin, should speed up initial block fetching (not sure about generation)

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

I'm sure it's called libeatmydata for a reason. Sorry I don't trust computers enough to disable syncing to non volatile storage regularly. Even with UPS battery backup.

That’s a good suggestion. I believe that this would prevent us from false positive detection. Try to report this one to the antivirus, it would probably help.
