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 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 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)

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 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
