Hi,

I just got this report from Norton when pressing the BrewSteps button. (Adobe Reader was already open with another file)



(btw, i never actually chose to remove the file actively, it was done by default settings in Norton.)

For an explanation on why this report is interpreted as a security risk: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DLL_injection

I'm guessing this is because Beersmith tries to do some funny stuff with adobe reader...

This may be by design too, but this is probably a reason why people are reporting antivirus issues.

Hi
  I suspect this may come from using Internet explorer as a plugin to display and print reports in the program.  Unfortunately I'm not sure how to avoid this, but I'll look at updating the libraries to see if there is a better method for accessing the web browser display in the program.
