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
“I assure our users that I always check released files with most modern antivirus programs”
We had a similar issue with Avast when it kept deleting the RadioDJ.exe program file because it thought it was suspicious.
Despite what Norton/AVG/Avast/Bitdefender may say…
There are NO nasty Viruses or Malware in RadioDJ we wouldn’t have used the software since 2011 if it wasn’t safe.
These days we’re finding 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.
Update 2018: We’re still using just Windows Defender to protect our Windows 10 machines and haven’t had any issues so far. We hate antivirus software that takes over your PC.
