Hmmm, good solution for making exceptions for the downloads and the location where you execute them.

I would not recommend using Microsoft Security Essentials, because in January this year there was a article on a website where it said that a german testing company did some tests on malware/virus protection with security essentials. And they said it scored a 0 yes a "zero". And they did not pass the certification.

Now ofcourse this does not mean it does not provide some protection.

I cant tell or force people to change their favorite antivirus program. This is your choice ofcourse.

But i do suggest you follow PWizards advice on using MalwareByte Anti-Malware, infact you(if its in your budget) buy the Pro version for permanent realtime protection, and combine it with a other anti-virus then Security Essentials.

anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ (First pages gives you the top 10 Anti-virus these are ofcourse paid versions)

For people who want a source about it.

I use Webroot Antivirus, and whenever I startup a trainer for the first time it blocks it. But unlike AVast, it gives me an option to allow or block the program and never had a problem. Just an option, but you have to pay for it.

I sent in a ticket and got this response:

Hello!
Thank you for the email.
The issue has already been fixed - please update the antivirus engine and database (in the section Maintenance - Update), and the problem should be gone.
Thank you for the understanding!


If anyone wants to give it a try
