    I already submitted the file as a false positive but I was wondering why a Rainmeter file is being detected again? Rainmeter is a non-malicious program that has been flagged in the past, and again today after I updated it to 2.1, rainbackup.exe was flagged again. I know some of the skins are infected on websites that have the skins but the program itself should never be infected.

    I was wondering what behavior or whatever is causing this executable to be flagged repeatedly.

    For those of you who don't know what Rainmeter is:

    "Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is at once an application and a toolkit. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity."
