Sorry that you've had this issue occur.

The reason behind this is the software uses 'keyboard and mouse hooking' to send the data back to Minecraft.

Basically - I'm deliberately sending "fake" keys and mouse movements to Minecraft in-order to move your character in game.

I can assure you I have no malicious intentions and this has probably been identified as a 'false positive' or your anti-virus sees it as suspicious behaviour.

 

Please if you are experienced with code take a look at the source code http://wiicraft.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/changes/66804 and check for yourself that this program is not designed to harm you or your computer.
