Some antispyware, antivirus or antitrojan programs can detect Cheat Engine as being infected or possibly infected with a form of badware (virus, spyware), although the application runs perfectly safe and does not pose a threat to your system. This type of reading is called a "false positive" and it occurs when antivirus software wrongly classifies an inoffensive (safe) file as a virus. The incorrect report may be caused by heuristics or by an incorrect virus signature in a database.

NOD is marking the open candy offer library as "potentially unsafe", which is another saying for "potentially safe". Opencandy throughly checks any application beforehand before accepting them, and then lets publishers know if they wish that specific application to be recommended to the user or not. The offer screen is clear and unobfuscated .The license agreement of OpenCandy is inside the license agreement that comes with Cheat Engine.

General Security Recommendations

1. Install an antivirus

In order to keep your computer free of malware, we recommend that you always have an antivirus program installed, especially when downloading and installing new programs from the web. At least once a day, run its database update program. This will allow your antivirus to stay up to date with the latest badware threats and better protect your computer data.

If you don't have a powerful antivirus solution already protecting your computer, you should install one from our recommendations: Avast Free, AVG Free, Avira Free, Bitdefender Free, NOD32.

2. Choose a safe web browser

An important aspect to keep in mind is what web browser you use. Most browser exploits and viruses target Internet Explorer so it's best you consider an alternative. The safest web browsers available Today are considered to be Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Besides being free, they are both fast, have pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, with privacy and security features. Give them a try: Download Mozilla Firefox or Download Google Chrome.
