Post Virus Detected in the Portuguese Bible download (VPVNT)
After downloading today the VPVNT Portuguese translation from the theWord site today, my antivirus software quarantined it as having a virus. I am using Panda Free Antivirus. The virus is called: W32/Exploit.gen.

Is there a copy of the file that does not present this error, or is my antivirus software incorrect?

This is a false alarm.
To avoid running the .exe, you can just download it and then open theWord and go to Files->Install modules and drag-n-drop the .exe file in this dialog: it will install the module without running the .exe

And if you don't want to do even that, you can right-click ion the file and select "unzip here" (or similar) and just unpack the file into the separate files. Look in the folders created to find the actual Bible module. I have 7Zip installed so that might be why it works for me, but I'm guessing it will work with any zip/unzip program.
