May I add to previous post: Both NSFT Defender and MBytes detect this and allow quarantine or removal. BUT, is do either of these options, i.e., REMOVE or QUARANTINE, Acrypt will no longer work! You will not get an option to encrypt/decrypt any files. Only solution I found is to reinstall 1.7 (pick one, they all have CANDYOPEN and tell your system to accept the risk and ignore it. Thus, I believe the only clean way to resolve is to get a software patch to fix ACRYPT legacy or, in my case, allow files to be timestamped with creation date of embedded file and not changed every time it is opened. I requested this years ago when V2 came out. Has there been any thought and change?
