We recently heard reports of antivirus programs flagging up the RadioDJ program files as suspicious.

Avast, Bitdefender, Norton were all flagging up, deleting and quarantining perfectly safe files.

It annoys us when AV software flags up a perfectly safe program as being infected when it isn’t.

We had the same sort of issues with the RadioDJ.exe a while back.

We sent the RadioDJ.exe file to the antivirus company and they came back with this.

“Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed in the next update. Thank you for your help”

 
So much for it being fixed… after the next update the AV software yet again deleted the RadioDJ program file.

You can be rest assured that there is ZERO Malware in RadioDJ.

Marius is having issues with the way the program is packed. Which is why things keep being falsely flagged up.

Q: Do you really need Antivirus software on the radio studio production machine running RadioDJ?

A: There really isn’t any need for Antivirus software especially if that machine isn’t connected to the Internet.

We just have Windows Defender running in the background on our Windows 10 machines & that seems to do a good enough job at keeping our computers safe.

“The chances of getting a Virus on a machine are negligible anyway”

(Unless you’re visiting dodgy malware laden websites or downloading pirated software)

Just exclude the RadioDJ program folder from being scanned by your Antivirus software & or Windows Defender

“Please take our word for it, RadioDJ is a as safe as houses & there is NO malware or any viruses in the program”

We wouldn’t let the program near any of our computers if it had malware or spyware in it.

We don’t do dodgy software here! well not these days…
