Yea you might want to go into the iThemes settings and disable the feature that notifies you on file changes. Its the stupidest feature they have because files are going to constantly change, and that's normal. It will get so annoying.

Thanks Adam, it seems this is a common issue brought up in many forums, I think you're the only that brings common sense to such things.

File integrity checks (file changes checks) are indeed needed and are crucial in security. File changes on a site because they could be a sign of a hack.

What iThemes seem to be doing wrong is that it does not identify a new plugin install or existing plugin update, so it reports a lot of false alarms, as in this case.
