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 & Kaspersky when it kept deleting the RadioDJ.exe program file because they thought it was suspicious.
The team at Kaspersky actually apologised for the problem: Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed in the next update. Thank you for your help.
Despite what Kaspersky/Norton/AVG/Avast/Bitdefender may say…
We’re finding that Windows Defender seems to be doing a good enough job keeping the Windows 10 PC we run RadioDJ on safe. But then again we aren’t browsing dodgy websites or downloading virus laden pirated software on that PC…
Unless you browse “dodgy” websites or download “pirated” software you don’t really need antivirus software on the machine running RadioDJ.
There’s certainly no need for antivirus on a production machine as the antivirus software could interfere with the smooth running of the program.
Yes you can quote me on that!
