I have this same problem. My virus scanner is not letting me run the AxCrypt 2 download. The certificate date is 5JAN17 and I am in Zurich.
Instead I have to download AxCrypt-1.7.3180.0-Setup.exe from the forum link and this works perfectly. I have deleted the unsafe AxCrypt2.
The certificate date is 4JUL16 and I believe this is the real software.
The SHA1 is – a9fac97c1ed306690abfb90b03331482c82c91ae and MD5 is – 3156d97c3fcce2e2edaa3468755be806.
