[Chimera-users] Problems with installing on a Windows 10 expedition Dell laptop

Since you are the customer of the antivirus software, you or your IT
specialist need to submit ChimeraX as a false positive to the antivirus
vendor. Then, after that knowledge is incorporated by the antivirus
software, it should no longer be considered a virus. You didn't say
this time if it was the ChimeraX installer, which is cryptographically
signed, or if it was one of the files ChimeraX installs. If the latter,
then that file would be the one that you submit. And please share which
file is causing the problem. I can envision a scenario where the
antivirus software complains about a third party package in ChimeraX
that doesn't have the latest security fix, and if that is the case, we
could update the ChimeraX daily build to work around the issue. But
that is normally beyond the scope of antivirus software and would break
lots of things besides ChimeraX.
