  • RR and McAfee trojan detection

    Evening guys,

    I'm aware that RR hasn't got a trojan and that its the web browser component causing the trojan detection but does anyone know how I can add RR to the McAfee exemption list to prevent me have to close McAfee down everytime I run RR or open the RR folder, without compromising my system? (I use McAfee on both my desktop and laptop PC for testing but not the car)

    Many thanks,
    Dave

      Anyone got any workarounds as I keep having to close McAfee and restore RR file. It's a pain. Can I tell McAfee that RoadRunner is a safe app? I can't see any options for this.

      Cheers,
      Dave

        Darn it, Just happened to me on my test box. And I dont see a way around it. However i didnt have to close Mcafee to run or restore RR. Just clicked on restore from the view results tab, (i think thats what it was called) select, and hit restore. Of course this was after the auto scan it flagged RR.

          Yeh, sorry not 'close' but turn off 'real time detection' and restore>files>select and restore RoadRunner .dx file.

              Why don't you just add the roadrunner directory as an exception to not scan in the real time scanner settings?

              AVG also detected road runner as a virus and I had to disable the entire directory from being scanned.

                That be the million dollar question. Been trying to hunt down that option, but it seems to elude me.

                  Same here, hence the thread. I thought maybe it was just me at first....

                    I've used McAfee Corporate for years and you can set exclusions there.
                    Also, I keep getting a trojan warning with roadrunner.exe.

                    Is there any way to verify this file is NOT infected?

                      hey enforcer, can we make you the person offically in charge of point people to the right post, when they claim they found a virius/trojan in RR?



                      hey u could slam them too, like "search before you post"... you know it would be fun
                      -Thanks

                        Thanks E but I've already read your post, hence the application specific post to appeal to other McAfee user about how to ignore this trojan detection.

                        Simply dumping my AV software on the family PC isn't an option. I guess it will be disabling the AV whilst messing with RR for now then .

                        Thanks guys,
                        Dave

                            Sorry mate, that's me being a little defensive.
