Win32:Evo-gen virus detected in iHomeServer.exe

I attempted to install the iHomeServer 64 bit for Windows and my AV software promptly stopped the install when it identified Win32:Evo-gen in the file.

The Win32:Evo-gen alert in some virus scanners is prone to false positives as it uses heuristics for detection. There is no malware in iHomeServer and we virus check all our packages before making them available for download.

If you want external verification, please check the file at www.virustotal.com.

Is this using Avast AV incidentally, whcih appears to have the most false positives reported. If so, you can report a false positive to their website via http://www.avast.com/contact-form.php - and we encourage this actively.

let us know how you get on and apologies for this inconvenience.
