Anti-Virus Problems and RadioDJ
We’ve heard of a few users saying that they couldn’t get RadioDJ to work because their antivirus program flags it as suspicious.
The main reason these pieces of Antivirus software keep flagging things up with RadioDJ is because Marius is trying to protect his code.
You can’t blame him for that!
We can assure you the RadioDJ program files aren’t riddled with any form of virus or malware.
It’s the anti-virus software giving a False/Positive result. These are just two quotes direct from Marius the developer of RadioDJ
“Avast is in some cases reporting files as infected. That is a false/positive!”
“I assure our users that I always check released files with most modern antivirus programs”
We had a similar issue with Avast & Kaspersky when it kept deleting the RadioDJ.exe program file because the AV software thought it was suspicious.
The team at Kaspersky actually apologised for the problem:
Despite what Kaspersky/Norton/AVG/Avast/Bitdefender may say…
There are NO nasty Viruses or Malware in RadioDJ we wouldn’t have used the software for the past 6 years if it wasn’t safe.
We find that Windows Defender is doing a good enough job keeping our Windows 10 PC’s safe. But then again we aren’t browsing dodgy websites or downloading virus laden pirated software, That’s where most viruses come from “dodgy” torrent/file sharing sites.
If you really need to have antivirus software make sure its one that’s light on CPU/Memory such as Avast
