With the AntiVirus and Malware software over the recent years it appears that they like to deem allot of crack or serial generators as bad. It is just as easy for the vendors like AVG or Avast to mark these bad to make sure that users don't use them and it is easier for them to keep up with better scanners IMO.
The reason sometimes programs mark these bad is because reversing teams do not pack there product properly (.exe). Sometimes a looser will take a crack from a team and inject some code that can do some thing to these trial fixes.
If your going to report a post as being bad please take the time to prove it out by uploading it to a site that can do scans on the file in question and then copy and paste the proof in the topic and report the post if you deem it as bad. As of right now Nod32 and Kaspersky are doing pretty good but there are others like Antivir which are doing extremely well as of late in true detection and not marking something bad just because it is a crack or keygen.
Here are a couple of sites you can upload files to. They use multiple scanners to do there detection. When done with your scans post the results in the topic in question either by text, screenshot and /or a link to the scanned file.
