Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Monophonic Files are -6dB

Why are monophonic files played at -6dB in Foobar2k.  Shouldn't these files play at equivalent amplitude to stereo files?

They are playing to the "center" speaker mapping, and the system is downmixing them to stereo somehow. If you don't like this, add a DSP which upmixes mono to stereo, one is provided with the player.
