For no apparent reason, McAfee has quarantined Aered.
I have been using it for years with no problems.

I tried to download it again and it quarantined it as soon as i tried to open it, any ideas?

this is the message it gave:

I haven't seen this before for Aered but McAfee VirusScan is known to have a big problem with false positives. For example, googling the McAfee message from your post I see that a number of computer games on Steam have the exact same problem. You should be able to whitelist the Aered executable so that McAfee no longer quarantines it.
