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.

About Monkey : can i get mono files

I'm compressing a lot of lot of old mono records and it's a waste of hard disk space to compress them with 2 channels.
Is there any way to tell Monkey Audio to compress just the right or the left channel?
If not, is there another lossless codec that make it?

it will compress mono stuff as mono (well practically speaking, the compression will be far greater - just as lossy encoders with lossless stereo coupling).

I suggest you read this:

btw.: even though the source says that it's mono it not always the case totally.

I suggest you try both with mono and stereo on your mono material then....
Then if there's no big difference stick with stereo.
