Probably a false positive if you downloaded it from the makemkv.com download page.

Woodstock, if you download the .exe from the makemkv.com, and then upload it to VirusTotal, what do you see? Does VirusTotal flag anything?

If I upload the file to Virus Total, there is one hit, "Bkav" says it contains "W32.eHeur.Virus04".

Searching internet for what that is, I get a recommendation to scan the file with AVG because it is more reliable... And AVG says the file is clean.

From looking into the history of these reports, the "huer" part of the virus name refers to it being a heuristic "hit".... it is LIKE something that has been classified as dangerous in the past, and it is not necessarily a dangerous program. This particular report used to come up for some Microsoft Office programs, until virus vendors wrote an exception in for it.

Your mileage will vary. My local AVG installation agrees with the virustotal general consensus, and not with the Bkav hit.

When in doubt, submit the file to whoever you trust for your antivirus. In my case, that's AVG, and AVG says it is clean. If your antivirus disagrees, send the vendor the file for them to verify it.

They have better tools for testing than we do.
