Program not running (AV false-positive)

Post by Sage987 » Mon Nov 25, 2019 11:34 pm

Recently I've been unable to run HDoujin Downloader. The below clip is a short recording of my task manager.

Three events are also created, see the screenshots for more information.

I've tried moving the folder containing the program and also redownloading hasn't made a difference. I don't understand what the error is so I don't know what to do in order to fix it.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Turns out my anti-virus is treating it as malware, specifically this malware Win32/Unwaders.A!ml

It's true, Windows Defender seems to be flagging it for some users (it's not something I've been able to reproduce on my end). I've reported the false-positive twice now, and they keep getting back to me saying that it's been whitelisted, but the problem seems to be persisting. I'm guessing it's some AI-based heuristic detection that they can't be bothered to fix.

If you feel like going through the trouble, it would be helpful if you could report the false-positive directly from your end-- You'd be able to include things like logs from the antivirus software that I'm unable to recreate from my end.

What O/S version are you running and which version of Defender is installed? I have W10 with Defender and have no issues like your having? Are you sure it is Defender that is doing that.

This is the report from my defender, all the blocks on there are the same as the expanded one.

I'm running Win10 with the latest update. I've just told my PC to allow the program for now.

Did you only leave Real-Time as the only option running? If you picked any of the other options then it will do this to your programs. Those other settings are a waste and not really worth using or enabling.

Here's my settings as you can see only the Real Time checker is enable the other 3 will not work as they say but cause more problems.
