I'm getting virus alerts from my zonealarm for the following.

1. poclbm.exe
2. rpcminer-opencl.exe
3. rpcminer-4way.exe
4. rpcminer-cuda.exe
5. rpcminer-cpu.exe
6. Py2Exe

What's with this? Anyone else having the same problem?

There have been a large number of AV programs flagging bitmining programs as false positives. You can complain to your AV company, and ignore them for now.

This, and also be sure that you downloaded the mining programs only from the official topics and/or websites of the software coders.

People actually take what an antivirus program says seriously?
