Virus/Trojan flag in Setup of version

Postby Xandirules » Wed Jun 29, 2016 2:56 am

Greetings Commanders,

Downloaded directly from LM latest full Install pack.
When trying to install ZoneAlarm blocked as Trojan threat.
That never happened, but thinking of a false positive I disabled ZoneAlarm.
Tried to install and this time was Windows Defender who zapped setup.exe.

Tried to upload to a online virus scanner but the file is too big.

Does anyone run at the same problem?

I had the same problem but with Windows Defender in Windows 10, I added the setup file to exclusion list and everything was fine after that.

Please report this to Microsoft as a false positive.
