Title: Windows Defender
Post by: ckoehn on October 15, 2018, 06:18:30 am
I had a weird thing happen this last week.  I hope it isn't an example of things to come.  A program I made with IWBasic with version info and all that had been running OK was suddenly flagged as a serious virus by Windows defender.  It popped up on the screen as a serious virus and recommended it be removed without stating the programs name.

I ran it through TotalVirus and all 67 virus checkers said there was no virus.

Hope Windows fixes that.

I use Avast, and that's happened to me with IWB programs before. Had the program compiled for ages, and then all of a sudden a message pops up. Hasn't happened with Defender, though
