OK all you tweaking virus experts, I think I'm back in the right place now. I hit the wrong button last time and double posted. Sorry !

We can all carry on about all the virus protection programs giving out false positives, but I'd like Shane or jpm to ponder this :

Why does v4.0.15 get flagged for the Critet virus but v4.0.14 DOES NOT  ??  Something ain't right

And to Boggin, Major Geeks should have v4.0.14. It works just fine.


Not sure if grimly has had problems with WD and .14 in the original thread, but you should keep your comments on there and not open a duplicate thread.

I'm locking this one.
Removed .15 and tried to install .14.
Installer reports an error (pointing to the install directory).
Defender barfs.

Where did you get the download for .14 ?

That's okay but ask him as he may have a means of uploading a file that size - he must have dealt with large uploads before.

You can also tell him that after conferring with garioch7 it was me that sent you to the BC forum and while you are being helped there, there will be no input from me.

You can use either if you can get the machine to boot up with them.

You can also try bootrec /fixboot

That may run better in Win 8.1 than it does in Win 10 1709.

If the bootrec cmds don't do anything, boot back up with the install media and go back to the Command Prompt and enter -

bcdedit |find "osdevice"

and using that partition letter instead of the x I have exampled, enter chkdsk x: /r to see what that reports.

For clarity, that's a Pipe symbol before find in the bcdedit cmd and is the uppercase of \

Enter exit to close the cmd window, remove the install media and shutdown then see what it's like on the reboot.

If that's still a no go then boot back up with the install media back to the cmd prompt and enter this cmd, again using your partition letter instead of the X I have exampled.

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\Windows and see what that reports.

Note the space before each /

NOw do  you use a usb drive  an actual disk
Whatever has caused this issue with Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender flagging the Win32/Critet.BS Trojan in Windows

Repair v4.0.15, whether it be Microsoft or the Repair_Windows.exe in v4.0.15, here is a good question to ponder :

Why is v4.0.15 flagged as Infected and v4.0.14 is NOT ??  This question looks like something went wrong with v4.0.15.

Just my 2 cents worth.

People have - because of good marketing - the belief that antivirus companies keep them safe and are perfect.  I have 20 years in the software business that says that they are mainly full of crap. :)

Antivirus apps are more and more becoming modern day scareware and less and less a protection software.

But to restate what I said, false postives with ALL antivirus apps are commonplace.  When it happens, it is incumbant on the author of the software to notify the AV company detecting them to fix it.

In this case, from reading about other software the was hit with the "Critet.BS " designation (Seems BS stands for BullShit) - it looks like Windows Defender was tagging  that used certian funtions in programing language.  For those who don;t know, is a micorosft programming language.

How do you hold responsible for that?
