Windows Defender

PicSender version 3.0.3 was hit with a false positive virus claim by Microsoft Windows Defender on Windows 10 computers this morning. Windows Defender then deleted it from my computers. I also use Malwarebytes Pro on all of my computers, and it reported PicSender to be completely free of viruses.

This is an ongoing problem with Microsoft Windows Defender. It is one of the worst anti-virus programs anyone can use in my opinion.

I always use Virus Total by Google to check all my programs before releasing them. It uses upwards of 70 different AV programs to test software for viruses.

Anyway, I have released PicSender version 3.0.4 today which resolves Windows Defender's false virus report. All user's are recommended to download and install.

Thanks to all for your support.

Thanks. Unfortunately, because it is so widely in use by lots of Win 10 users, I am forced to use it myself so I can head off the false positive issues it creates. But I do back it up with Malwarebytes for personal security.
