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

Kaspersky, 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 Kaspersky a while back.

We sent the RadioDJ.exe file to Kaspersky 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 Kaspersky yet again deleted the RadioDJ program file.

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

Marius is only trying to protect his code. Which is why things keep being flagged up.

Q: Do you really need Antivirus software on the PC running RadioDJ?

A: There really isn’t any need for Antivirus software on a radio studio production machine.

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

The chances of getting a Virus on a machine are negligible anyway. Unless you’re visiting dodgy websites or downloading pirated software!

If you feel you have to install something for peace of mind then Kaspersky is what we generally recommend.

Just exclude the RadioDJ folder from being scanned.

“Please take our word for it, RadioDJ is a as safe as houses & there are NO malware or 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
