Today's false positive with Windows Defender is the rewire dll in Renoise.


What annoys me is, I clicked the option not to delete it and it still removed it anyway - god damn it!


anyway gonna report it as wrong when I get the dll back after a reinstall.

I have Spybot the free Version.  It doesn't work.  It also keeps Windows Defender from working.  Which is pretty good..  imho




Edit = on my machine it wasn't windows defender.  It was the big windows 10 update from this morning.   It screwed up my Steinberg eLicenser, I had to uninstall and reinstall.  I can also not get rewire to work now.   I likely have to uninstall reinstall Renoise as well.




Microsoft!!   Evil!!!!!!!

Windows Defender detected it (rewire_engine.dll) as "Trojan:Win32/Bitrep.A" during startup of my Jack Audio Server. 


I also choosed the option to do nothing, but windows pushed the file into quarantine anyway.


However, i was able to recover the file from quarantine via the "Windows Defender Security Center" -> "Scan History" and the little dropdown-arrow-menu-thingy next to the assumed "Win32/Bitrep.A"-threat. 


Rewire (Renoise -> Reaper) and Steinberg-eLicenser-Instruments still do run fine...
