Hello, i'd like to report that an exe with anything compiled by G++ (mingw gcc) will be reported as a "lookslike.trojan.hueristic" and then a dot followed by a random letter on virustotal for mccaffee GW EDITION..

the first line is what i was using to compile it.

//Z:/Z/MinGW/bin/g++.exe Z:/Z/Program/mingw.cpp -o Z:/Z/Program/mingw.exe

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <wchar.h>

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>

#include <string>
#include <sstream>
#include "windows/include/windows.h"

#include <io.h>


return 0;
