I gotta agree with @smaragdus its up to the anti-virus developer to correct their mistake naming something as malware or anything bad when in fact it is not! I have used this software for quite some time and really like and its easy to use & works great.

There is a v2.6.21, only for x64.
"same as 2.6.20 with x265 encoder fixed on win64"

Love this software to do quick edits (just cutting out a clip from a longer video), or to convert file types (avi->mp4). If the codec remains the same it will be done in seconds!

  • 277MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Feb 2019
  • Suggested by Danilo

Inkscape is a vector graphics editor and open alternative to commercial apps like Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X. Useful for branding, icons, web design, publishing and even illustrated maps, it supports features like shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns and grouping. Uses the open W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format, as well as exporting to other vector-based and standard image types like PNG. Imports formats such as JPEG, PNG and TIFF.

Inkscape Portable is a portable wrapper distributed by the publisher using the PortableApps.com format. Alternatively, X-Inkscape is another wrapper that writes settings to the application folder.

Those on Windows XP and Vista should use 0.92.3 as that is the last supported version for those operating systems.
