Rewrite your code so popular anti-virus programs don't flag your dll files as malware. I am not going to notify Avira of a possible false positive for shareware, that is the developer's job.

updatemgr.dll is flagged by Avira and quarantined so I am not able to use today's GOTD and I don't care if it is most likely a false positive, as it is not my job to ensure that the file is safe or report it to Avira. That is something I may want to do for free or open source programs, but for paid shareware, it is unacceptable.

Sometimes it's not the developer's choice to have code compiled to look like viruses. I have modified some executable binaries before, and I know the program doesn't have any problems, but my AV is convinced that it does.
