Anti-Virus And Nxt Pro 2

Question

This is just a heads up, I am using bit-defender and it reports a virus in RoxioCentralFx.exe (I downloaded NXT 2 today from the UK site).

Meanwhile AVG and others give it the all clear - so it looks like some virus scanners are given it a false positive.

 

 

This explained my many clashes and installation hangs. :wacko:

Thanks for this info.

 

It seems that this requirement to be on-line while installing the more recent Roxio software suites makes it difficult to disable your AntiVirus yet remain safe during the time it takes to install NXT. You're 'between a rock and a hard place' as it were.

 

How did you manage your install in the end?

 

Regards,

Brendon

No problem

Because Bitdefender could not clean the file, it flagged the file as non-executable. I just had to add to the list of exclusions in bitdefender (anti-virus settings) after installation, in my case this resolved the exe.

 

I was a little lucky that it had not tampered with the file, in that case I would have to go throught the loops of disabling the anti-virus during install, adding the exclusions; and depending on how agressive the anti-virus is, it may either involve restoring the exe from a backup once it has been excluded.

 

Don't like exclusions, but no choice.
