Windows Defender false positive


Recommended Posts

  • ESET Insiders

I reinstalled the current beta of ESS this evening and upon install it warned of a potential conflict with Windows Defender and recommended I uninstall it (Windows 8, not an option). Then after it ran its first scan it detected the executable for Windows Defender as malicious and wanted to delete it. Probably something that should be looked into.
