Antivirus Suites Block DSEO

It has come to our attention that several Antivirus suites have listed our Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider (DSEO) as a dangerous file. We originally created DSEO to solve the serious driver signature enforcement problem that appeared after Microsoft removed the permanent command line switch that disables driver signature enforcement in Windows Vista SP1 and Windows 7. Sadly, the only way around this is to press F8 upon startup and choose "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement", which is temporary and unacceptable. Microsoft has left users without an option to disable the feature permanently.

Driver signature enforcement is indeed a good idea, but it is performed badly. It requires all drivers and system files to be digitally signed with a certificate or they won't run. The problem with signing your files is the fact that the certificate costs thousands of dollars. Of course, that money is not a concern for corporations such as Adobe, but for the majority of developers, which are freeware/open source developers that make no profit, this is simply unforgivable.
