A few users of RadioDJ recently took to the RadioDJ forums to vent their frustrations over their antivirus software claiming there was a Trojan in the program files and that their PC wouldn’t let them download/install it.

We had a similar warning from Windows Defender on Windows 10 about the RadioDJ reports .exe file which we chose to ignore we just added the RadioDJ program folder to the exclusion list.

However Marius has said this on the forums.

Marius simply would NOT program something like a virus into the software, The reason these false-positive results occur is because he’s simply trying to protect parts of his code from being nicked by other developers.

I’ve been Bitten on the arse by so many viruses in what appeared to be genuine software in the past but that’s one thing I’ve not had to worry about with any of Marius’s releases of RadioDJ.

If you still don’t believe us after this post then there is no hope for you my friend! You need to tell that crappy antivirus program of yours to stop taking over the computer! You don’t have these issues if you tell AV software to ignore certain folders/files.

I’ve ignored the warning in Windows error logs from Windows Defender and the Windows 10 machine is chugging along without any errors.
