My virus scanner says StarTools contains a virus or a trojan - what gives?

Some less reputable virus scanners such as BitDefender falsely report StarTools as a Trojan (due to malware that carries a similar name). Despite multiple users going through the lengths of getting StarTools white listed, the same problem pops up every 6 months or so.

Please see this post in the forums for more information.
