Re: Windows defender marking NVDA a trojan
Hi Quentin. I didn't encounter such an issue. However, I do have an alternative work around for this issue. Since this problem arises from Windows security, then it should be dealt with at the root., so here goes.
1. Open up windows security.
2. Arrow down to "Virus and Threat Protection" and pres space bar
3. tab to "Manage Settings" link and press the space bar on it.
4. tab over to "Add Or Remove Exclusions Link" and press space bar on it. You will land on the "Add an exclusion" button. Press space bar on it.
5. Now you will land on the list of Items you are allowed to exclude, the "Files" item is top of the list. Press space bar on it.
6. Now a browse dialog box will come up. Browse to where you have your NVDA.exe saved, then tab to the "File Name" edit box and press enter, or just press enter when you have found NVDA.exe.
Now, you might want to ensure that the NVDA Folder on your hard
drive is also excluded from Windows Securities's black list after
you installed it. Follow the same procedure, only this time
selecting "Folders" for the exclusion procedure. That item comes
after "Files" HTH. Cheers!
