    DivX Software is completely safe to install on your PC or Mac.

    The free version of the DivX Software does include some third party offers that some anti-virus software may detect as what is called "false positive". Please rest assured that there are never any viruses with the DivX Software. These third party software, that some user might find useful, help us keep providing a free version of the DivX Software.

    These offers can also always be declined during the installation process. And we do sell the Ad-Free Plug-in as well as the DivX Pro, that will not have any offers within the installer as well as Ads within the DivX Software components. You can find more information on those two on our website DivX.com.

    In most cases, making sure you are on the most up-to-date definition will fix these false positives. Please try making sure you have the most updated version and definition for your anti-virus and/or try temporary disabling your anti-virus software when running the DivX Software installer.

    If you  experience any issues or have additional questions please feel free to contact our Support team here.

    How do the rest of us get a malware-free update?  So far every one of the downloadable updates trigger my malware programs. This does not look good for DivX.

    Received update for DivX new version--10.8.7.

    I am immediately advised by my protection systems that "Trojan.Win32.Chapak.dgtm detected" in this new version.

    One month ago, Ray Stone requested "a malware-free update".  Where is your response?  Is there a DivX Pro new version 10.8.7 that does not contain components that are dangerous to our computers?
