I want to allow installation of a setup.exe file that has been erroneously flagged as malware by CIS. The exe-file has been altered in some way by the distributor (Giveawayoftheday) to prevent the software from being installed outside a certain timeframe.
This is what Giveawayoftheday wrote to me:
"Neither Security Essentials in my VM nor Bitdefender in win7 can find a problem with it.
It is possible your security software is triggering on the GOTD setup & GFD files, since they are compacted & encrypted to prevent decompiling – decompiling would be a way of reverse engineering to get the actual setup file when the GOTD is over. Some mal-ware is also compacted/encrypted to prevent security software from recognizing it. Since the security software can’t see inside of the setup files, some security software just determines everything that’s compacted/encrypted is mal-ware.
Solution one might be to change your brand of security software.
Solution 2 might be to work around it – see the other threads dealing with this & similar topics. "
I could not find any threads though.
I tried Game Modus but that did not work.
