I can't download any trainers my BitDefender IS 2011 blocks my attempts to download them. I even had several trainers downloaded in the past and when I tried to open the folder they were in BD deleted them. I gather this a false positive but how do I download trainers and use them without disabling my anti-virus?
The "trojan" detected seems to be random name such as Gen:Trojan.Heur.JP.Nu0@a4BoWdji
I suppose I can live with disabling my AV while downloading, then cut off the internet and then leave my AV off while playing the game. That is if it is a false positive.
Bit Defender has an Exclusion list for files but I'd still have to kill my AV to download trainers first before I can add them to the exclusions. I'll turn off my AV to download only if there's no risk. So do you suspect the "trojan" warning is a false positive?
Trojan warnings are definitely false positives. Most trainers here are custom made by a professional team, so no worries. Also, any submitted files are scanned before an administrator manually approves them.
