So I just try to run a second instance of m0mchil's poclbm miner, and AVG antivirus flagged it as malware and asked me to remove it.
I am sure the miner program is safe right?

Did you run md5 against the package to verify that you have the correct one?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Well, I downloaded from http://github.com/downloads/m0mchil/poclbm/poclbm_py2exe_20110325.7z
Been running since yesterday (no AVG warning yesterday). Today, I decide to run another instance of it, as I have two GPUs. Then I got the AVG warning.
No, I did not check the md5, as I've already extracted the 7z and thus can't check it now.
