My antivirus says salad is a trojan:win32/phoenix

my antivirus says salad is a trojan:win32/phoenix. so i was very hesitant on allowing it to run on my pc. i did a bit more research and decided to allow it, but as soon as i did that my pc got really slow and my pc crashed. i deleted salad and the trojan. and now my pc works fine. why is a trojan being used for phoenix miner?and is this just a big virus?

Hello klosterboerdraven,
phoenix is the mining software used by salad. Your Pc is slow because the miner uses your gpu to earn you money. If you want it to stop just press STOP inside the salad app and your pc will stop mining. Phenix is flagged as a trojan because it uses your gpu in the background.
Have a nice day!
