Re: ESET Antivirus accessibility
To be honest I am seriously thinking about my future with windows defender.
Due to bgt misreporting I have had to do a lot of exclusions.
I did a single update to a file which I was told to by its developer for a game which had a single bugfix executable patch and then I put it into the excluded folder.
I then had to pass it through smartscreen which I have since got rid of to see if that helps but who knows.
Defender started to rabit on that svchost.exe in c:\windows was infected, except that file did not exist, yet when I switched back to the version of the game that I had previous it worked well enough.
While some blind accessible stuff is outdated it seems that windows defender wants to get round my exclude now.
I have adjusted what security I think I can get away with but its getting to the point if it spreads I will have to run without windows defender completely or simply run less and less software that will conflict with it.
I mean I may have to do eventually but its just a pitty is all.
I am seriously wandering about just disabling windows defender and having an ondemand scanner which works.
I have always wandered if there is something that will use virustotal as a scanner or if they have an on demand.
I seriously don't really need antivirus for much bar file downloads.
With my configuration with scripted games and a few programs, there are things the antivirus will just skip about.
