Avast blocking latest update 10.37S Build 60
« on: November 14, 2017, 10:39:09 AM »
Hi,
Anyone else being blocked form loading the latest update?  Avast is preventing me from opening it and its sending to a virus lab for interrogation. I cant open it either as an administrator

Update: Avast have come back stating the file is clean and its allowing me to update

Update: Its allowed me to update but again its sending WD exe to virus lab for checking as its stating there is a threat.

Update: Avast have yet to come back and so I disabled it for 10mins then run WD now firewall is blocking it!

I had that, so I switched to Bitdefender.  Then I found Bitdefender while the top anti whatever,  ate a lot of memory.  So now I have Kapersky, until the US decided the Russian based company is a no-no.   

Can you put into the exclusions, weatherdisplay?  the exe  portions?

It probably gets picked up because WD opens other programs from itself like webcamcapture, clientraw etc
