    I use Avast Antivirus on my machines and have never had any issues until after I recently install Scrapebox. When I did a routine scan of my machine, virus scanner alerted me it found a virus in Scrapebox folder and deleted it.

    This got me worried so I removed Scrapebox installation. Is this a false alert or is there some virus issue with Scrapebox? It would be a shame if this is an issue with Scrapebox, especially after paying this much for it. What say you?

    Delete the scrapebox folder and download new zip file from their website. Might be scrapebox files got infected with virus.
