There's also the simple fact that "an executable with a Tor client built in" is more likely than not malicious: a lot of modern malware uses Tor for C&C. Things could be worse - though I'm not sure if this happens - if malware downloaded the legitimate tor.exe on the side. Have you reached out to AV vendors and see if this issue could be solved? They might be willing to whitelist the executable. (FYI, I pinged someone at Panda about this particular issue and they'd look into it.) Martijn.
