Windows Defender reports from the iso file:
file: C:\Users\Desktop\>ReactOS-0.4.8.iso->reactos\>drwtsn32.exe
Is this a known issue or a false positive? It indicates this is a severe threat.

drwtsn32.exe just puts a log file for when a Program crashes. It's a false positive for spyware

I see a way to get around the Dr. Watson thing. It could be compressed under a different name and extracted by the installer (eg., drwatson.ex_). Or, if file size is the problem, it can always be padded.

Then of course is talking to the AV people. Though I imagine people are submitting ReactOS or its files to them already to analyze.
