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 program 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 so we binned that piece of antivirus software off and just started using Windows defender.
You can be rest assured that there is ZERO Malware in RadioDJ.
Marius is having issues with the way he packages the Installer and certain pieces of AntiVirus software think the program files are Infected when they aren’t!
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 We’ve not had a virus since we started using Windows 10”
The only way you’re likely to get Viruses or Malware is by visiting dodgy malware laden websites or by downloading pirated software from Torrent sites
We just exclude the RadioDJ program folder(s) from being scanned by Windows Defender.
“Please take our word for it, RadioDJ is a as safe as houses & there is NO Malware nor are there any Viruses in the program”
We wouldn’t let the program near any of our computers if it had Malware or Spyware in it.
