Cheat Engine 5.6.1 executable removed w/o permission

Just today (January 4) Cheat Engine 5.6.1 was removed on my computer and I cannot restore by reinstalling.  Only the executable (Cheat Engine.exe) is removed and is deleted only a few seconds after installing, without conformation from McAfee.

Is there any way to install it without disabling McAfee or have it make a conformation dialogue like every other faulsely-detected trojan horse?

Thanks in advance.

From which site did you install Cheat Engine?, because there are too many websites which has Cheat Engine and the one which you have downloaded may be really a Trojan. Try with some other download site and check the status.

Also specify your McAfee programs version including DAT and Engine details...

Agree with Aldrin some sites might have tainted copies

Have a read here and yes you may have to email mcafee for a review

OK to assist I emailed the file to Mcafee labs for checking. Submitted to virustotal 6 out of 43 scanners give a positive. Wait and see what Mcafee says

I have the same problem, I really like this program and it has its own website which is where I downloaded it from. The link is "http://cheatengine.org/downloads.php", the creator of the program claims that McAfee and other AV programs think it's a virus because of the functions the program has. My McAfee removes it immediately saying it has a trojan.

I resent it to mcafee and asked for it to be rechecked manually. No reply yet
