    Still downloads 4.1.1 for me.

  2. Steve Knapp

    4.1.1 still just now, too

  3. Oops, I had cleared the CDN cache. I will clear it again. Here is its direct link: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/downloads/UWT4.zip

    I downloaded it, and was informed by 360 that it is a Trojan horse, and therefore it is quarantined. Anyone know anything about this?

  5. Rest assured that it is a false positive. You may add it to your antivirus exclusions. See VirusTotal scan results: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/40753caa137ccc1e377809008812ace3c35004e51edf3c187649652d2ff2758c/analysis/1471584122/

    Since UWT makes changes to registry and system files for tweaks, Antivirus thinks it’s a virus. But we assure you it’s a false positive. You can check out Virus Total report.

  12. Svetislav Radosavljevic

  13. UTW4 doesn’t support this OS (but I have a fylly updated Windows 10).
    Any ideas on why. Tried UTW3 but that complains about some .Net stuff

  14. Paras Sidhu
