I have been using Avi Recomp for years and version 1.5.5 from the day it cam out in a win xp desktop/laptop and a win 7 laptop..Your getting false positive readings from your antivirus it is a good clean program for what it does and always has been..I even downloaded it again after I read your comment and checked it again with Malwarebytes and UnThreat and it came out clean..I also checked it against the 1.5.5 executable installer I kept in storage form a year ago and its the exact same file and file size..In fact Its due for an update hopefully soon...:)

Yeah, it's sure strange. I've never had any problems with this prog before, it's always been fantastic. I have now tried it twice on two different systems and it does the same thing on both. I do have almost the same applications set up on both machines, so maybe there is a conflict with something or is it to do with having Athlon processors?
Anyway, I am not too concerned as v1.50 does everything I need.

v1.51 running fine for me(also on XP). No problems with output size or system stability. I have in the past seen problems installing a new version of xvid overtop old version. Uninstalling old version first fixed it.

Review by KiwiKid on Jul 13, 2010 Version: 1.51 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I haven't seen anybody else comment, but since upgrading to the latest version I have had nothing but problems. Encodes are massively undersized, bad quality and when the program is running my PC becomes unsatble due to very high processor demands.
I tried it on my older AthlonX2 system and it was even worse. Uninstalled and re-installed v1.5 and everything is sweet again.

This is one excellent superbly functioning software tool. Room for potential and it just dropped a point from me on functioning as the xvid 2 pass is fixed(no 1 pass quality), but I love it nonetheless.

AutoGK for DVD and this for MP4's which AutoGK does not accept as source eg H264. Better than once potentially great Handbrake(as developers stopped avi support)and I love how AVIRecomp comes as a nice install package with Vdubmod etc.
