By 4 engine, its not nothing.

Just to make sure.

This is false positive, JFX and ChrisR published Fixscreen.exe from scratch. Those 4 false positives are because the behavior of Fixscreen.exe.  This behavior is needed to make relevant changes, anti-virus doesn't trust a program making these kinds of changes, and since the publisher can be verified, (JFX, ChrisR) we know it is safe. As long as the copy you are getting is through the builder servers you are fine.

At least now you know which 4 anti-virus's will give you false positives  :great: I've had batch files I've made get flagged before.
