Try compiling using the exe instead of bin.

In many cases you are dealing with false-positives or lazy companies that don't do their homework and are copying signature databases from elsewhere and without proper research.

Members of the AutoHotkey community can help out and submit files to Anti-Virus companies directly to make sure it isn't a false-positive.
