Some antivirus software may flag Honeyminer as an unknown application. That’s because Honeyminer is brand new. Honeyminer software is written in the United States, compiled completely in-house, code-signed by DigiCert, and fully audited for security compliance.
After Honeyminer is installed, you can turn it on and off as you please. Your computer should run perfectly normal with it on, the one exception would be if you were playing a graphics-intensive video game, you may want to pause Honeyminer as the same graphics card is used to mine.
