Thanks for reporting. There is also a similar issue in bugzilla:

There is a tool installed with Visual D that monitors file accesses to 
capture library dependencies of the linker. This uses techniques that 
might look as a virus to some programs.

I tried making it pass through all the checkers on virustotal, but that 
didn't work out. There are always some programs that still complain... 
Even the latest dmd release candidate fails for 3 of 50 virus checkers.
