The problem is not in SURVO MM but in the Avast software since it blocks
downloads of EXE files if these conditions are met:
1. The file is not prevalent enough, ie. not enough Avast users launched
the file yet,
2. The domain is not prevalent enough, ie. not enough Avast users
downloaded (any) EXE files from the domain yet,
3. The file is not signed or Avast does not trust the signature.
This is told, for example in
Surely SURVO_MM.exe does not fulfil the above conditions but this does not
mean that some viruses are lurking when using SURVO MM.
Hundreds of people in Finland and other countries have been using
SURVO MM for plenty of years without any troubles related to viruses.
I have posted a message to Avast asking them
as, for exaple, F-Secure does,
to introduce an option "I trust the application. Always allow it."
or at least
to accept SURVO_MM.exe as a trustworthy file.
