Reporting Windows Defender identified XYplorer.exe as "virus"

Post by cadu » 19 Feb 2019 12:30

Hi,

I'm reporting Windows Defender identified XYplorer.exe as a virus on my System (Windows 10).
Since Defender real-time protection was on, it put XYplorer.exe in quarantine automatically.
After that, I turned off real-time protection (at least for a while).
Some screenshots below.
Is there something that can be done to prevent XYplorer be identified as a virus?

Thanks!

It happened some hours ago, so I thought users should be informed.
I did search for threads about it, but what I found refers to older XYplorer versions, and if the problem persists I thought it would be informative for all.
Cheers!
