Touhou Luna Nights malware?

Both the Virus Scan and my computer's antivirus detected some sort of "generic malware". Ive heard that sometimes it turns out to not be true but im not sure what to do.

Due to how THCRAP (the patching software responsible for implementing the English-language patches to the official games) actually patches the game executables, a process called DLL Injection, various antivirus software often misdetect the patched executables as "generic malware" or a "potentially unwanted program"/"PUP" due to other viruses maliciously performing the same process in order to infect your system. 

I would expect Luna Nights to have a similar issue where the patching method makes AVs think LN is a virus.

In short: Your antivirus' detections are probably false positives.

Oh, so thats what happens. I didnt know the unofficial games also have that same patching software, so i thought it could have a virus or something. Thanks
