Well ms has stopped updating win7 deffs now officially so it
won't effect it.
As usual microsoft targets blindness software, I have exclusions
for games, recorders and it seems now I will have to do the same
to my screen readers and maybe sapi voices?
At this rate I may as well exclude my entire c drive!
How can we the user be secure if we get so many false alarms.

It was NVDARemote the other week, now it seems it's our
turn for Microsoft's random unfounded accusations. If you try
to install the release candidate of NVDA 2019.3, Windows
Defender will alert you it has found a trojan in eSpeak NG and
blocked it. The install of NVDA will fail.
As a workaround for now, you can create a portable copy of
the RC and that should run fine. You won't be able to use
NVDA 2019.2.1 installs and runs fine, even using eSpeak NG
(it uses a different build of eSpeak NG).
I am not sure whether this affects Windows 7 users as
well. I have reported it to Microsoft but I would encourage
everyone else to as well. To be honest, even aside from it
being our program affected, this really annoys me. Defender
has NOT found a trojan in eSpeak, its heuristic (machine
learning) has guessed that it looks a bit suspicious and
flagged it - Ok that happens, but say that, don't say
absolutely that a known malicious software has been found.
It took a day or so to fix Defender's virus list and have
NVDARemote cleared, so I expect it will probably be within
about the same timeline this time around. Apologies for the
