Blocked / Virus
Staxel might get blocked by browsers, Windows smartscreen or virusscanners.
As far as we can tell these issues will go away when Staxel is more popular and gets whitelisted by these products.
To the best of our knowledge Staxel, the launcher and the installer are safe. (Unless you didn't get the files directly from us !)
