The Symantec protection here yesterday identified the new install files as «could contain a virus» (Symantec is configured here that every new like a virus. In the meantime I sent the two installer files (the standard file and the portable file) to Symantec' «false positive llsit», and in today I got the message from Symantec that both files are now identified as *not malicious*.

So hopefully we all with Symantec protection will be able to install soon! :D

Kind regards –

FastKeys is clean and safe software. Some web security or antivirus software may occasionally wrongly suspect FastKeys as Spyware because it processes keyboard input. Such reports are false and FastKeys is absolutely safe to use. In such cases please to manually unblock FastKeys from the quarantine manually until the issue is resolved.

Fixed "Run FastKeys on startup" not working properly in certain cases.

If you experience this issue just download and install again.
