    I’m new to cntrlr and I’m on windows 10
    When I install 5.4.29 windows defender alerts me it detected malware, and erases the executable (and maybe other files? i didn’t look closely)

    False positive, or did something sneak into the build (yikes)?

    image attached.

    on win 10, i’m running 5.3.201 with no problems. don’t know
    if i’m supposed to be using that version, but you could try
    that instead.
    unlikely to be malware though. maybe your windefender has
    gone hyperactive.(win10 gets irritating, for various reasons)

    On my Windows10 there are no alerts when installing Ctrlr v5.4.29. If there was a malware in this build many people would have noticed it by now (this is not a brand new release). The malware must come from somewhere else. I would run UnHackMe, in the trial period it will remove malware for free: http://www.greatis.com/unhackme/. It does a much better job than the goofy defender.

    Update:
    scanned my system, no issues found…
    downloaded again to try install… no complaints from windows defender, re-scanned with both the scanner and windows defender no problems found.
    Baffling.

    Anyways, thanks for the help.

    I got the same thing from Norton Security, I ignored it!

    Yes you can definitely ignore it. It is a false positive.
