VAC isn't like PunkBuster. It doesn't instantly ban people like PB does. When it detects a "cheat", it has to go through a review process before they ban the account.

I wouldn't worry about it. Even if they did ban your account, they should know what the executable was that was running, and then if you appeal they will see it's not a cheat at all. Odds are it's already been deemed safe by Valve, or VAC doesn't even care about it because it doesn't hook the game's executable and modify anything relevant to cheating.

Yea, I am willing to bet Valve knows about it and VAC doesn't ban for it.
