Check if you have an AV, and it quarantined the file from a false positive id.
A lot of AVs are trying to preemptively block "suspicious" code, badly.
Garbage collectors by their nature look promiscuously all over memory everywhere
in the heap, outside where "normal" code would be expected to access.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
