I went to install this and NOD32 stopped the install from a virus being included with it. NewHeur_PE virus in is-R87GP.tmp. I'll have to email them about it I guess. Could be false, but I trust NOD32 more than trusting my gut.

This is a false positive that we're aware of, we contacted nod but of course they won't do any changes anytime soon so the solution they suggested was to tell our users to add it as an exception. We sign the exe files so if the file you downloaded was signed, then it's the one we created and I can assure you that it contains no viruses (you can try scanning it with other antiviruses, for instance we did a report on virustotal and none of the antiviruses they use found anything).

Also, if you google the "probably unknown" report you'll see that there are other many cases where nod32 suspects files that do not contain viruses. Until they will include this exception in a future update, the only solution would be to add FBackup on your exceptions list if you still want to try it.

Pure bloat...
A backup app that uses a 10mb installer (imagine the unpacked size) and has over 40 windows is simply bloat and written by a bad programmer.
Even if it would ask one question per window, 40 questions for doing backups are too much...

>>A backup app that uses a 10mb installer (imagine the unpacked size
The installed size is around 20mb, I find it hard to believe it would be a bloat given that hard drives nowadays have at least 250gb.

>>40 questions for doing backups are too much
This just proves you didn't test it. As you can see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTdl5z_tkxA, to create a backup there are 2 mandatory questions (where to backup, and what to backup), and 2 optional ones (to compress or not the backup, and if you want it scheduled). So that's a maximum of 4 questions, not 40. This is a backup program so you have to tell it at least what you want to backup, and where to back that up, I don't know how it could be simplified even more.
