First install - blocked by antivirus program

Hi,
About to install the registered Slingshot for the first time, my antivirus Kaspersky denied the install and deleted the slingshot.exe file.
Below are the messages from Kaspersky.
Sorry for a lot of text but I thought it would be good to show the complete logs for each event.
Meanwhile I will deactivate my antivirus.
Kind regards, Lars

Hello,

Likewise, Norton 360 is blocking the slingshot software install! Any idea what is going on? Does your software require a direct link to the Amazon server that downloaded your software to run?

Jim

Hello thanks for your feedback.
We are working to certificate the software in order to solve installing problems, in the meantime to launch Slingshot you have to move it in the whitelist .
