I have recently downloaded Dev C++ software and have been exploring the different header files. I wrote this very simple program (it had like 35 characters total) and every time I go to compile it I get a "Found Virus" alert. The thing that really gets me is that this is a real virus according to my anti virus software. It is called NTRoot-G. Has anyone else had a problem like this?

If anyone wants I can copy the source code down.

If you do not mind submitting the code, I'll try to compile it. I bet you have something else on your Windows (most likely) though. What are you using as an anti-virus software?


The source code was this:

#include <stdlib.h>
int main()

I am using Mcafee anti virus. I dont think that it is a problem with the Software because it is only when I compile this one program. I can compile others and nothing has happened.
