I'm fade up with antivirus false positive on 64k/4k intros... i cannot run my fave ones because of this -___-
I wonder if it's possible to uncrunch them to make my AV stop send them to quarantine/delete ??
Or maybe some of them could already be download uncrunched (mainly Farbrausch intro, or the Fermi paradox for exemple) ?
That could be cool if uncrunched version of an intro could be available ---> we don't care if the size is not 4 or 64k anymore outside the compo ^^

No, it's not possible to simply undo the compression. However, you can simply add your demo folder to the exception list of your AV software so that it stops complaining.

rahow: In fact, there is a project under the Demozoo umbrella for just this kind of thing - https://github.com/demozoo/open_depacker - though we're a little ways off yet. The part about antivirus false positives is definitely a valid one in this respect too.
