I was testing the antivirus beta version this morning & it froze my internet a couple of times then was stable so I decided to test on Eicar site It allowed me to not only download zip files but didn’t detect Eicar when opened & executed. The only warning I got was when opening Eicar normal file & this warning was just from the Hipp asking allow or block. Windows defender detects these files every time before any other programme does. Avast detects as a Eicar virus test & ask to repair or delete never to allow.
Edit: don’t shout, please :).
