Update Pro v4.0.15
« on: March 16, 2018, 11:07:03 PM »
Dear: Sir

I tried to install this new update, however Windows Defender tells me and my laptop PC that this update is
corrupt and it will not install. I am using Windows 10 version 1409. Any help you can give me in this matter
would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and effort in this grave matter. Please advise ASAP

Best Regards
Ross Price

Hi Ross,

Firstly, you should edit your post to remove your email address, otherwise you will attract a lot of unwanted spam via Web bots.

Secondly, I would suggest you try downloading the latest version of WR AIO from the Direct Download link on this page http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/windows_repair_all_in_one.html and install to update your current version.

You are the second one to report this about Windows Defender and you will need to whitelist it as well as contacting Microsoft.

It is a false positive.

This is the other member who had reported this and what I found.

Windows Defender and MSE probably share the same heuristics, so MS will need to be informed of this false positive.

WRAIO 4.0.15 installed OK after I told MSE to ignore the warnings.

After a few weeks I removed Tweaking.com from Norton's whitelist to see if it still reacted to it but Norton had moved on with its Definitions and no longer kicked it out, which could also end up being the case with WD and MSE.

At the time I didn't know how to whitelist in Norton so contacted them and one of their guys did it for me, so don't know if he reported that and the Definitions amended.

I turned Windows Defender real-time protection of and the Tweaking.com update v.4.0.15 was installed. However, when i turned the Windows Defender real-time back on and tried to run the update it was still corrupted. What Now?

If you read the post that I've linked in my Reply #4 you will see that I had similar problems with Norton Security, but they eventually passed.

You will need to whitelist the program in WD.

Dear: Sir

With all this chatter on this subject i am a little confused. Who has the virus MSWD or Tweaking.com v4.0.15 and who is going
to fix the problem? To all who responded thank you.

Best Regards
Pricer

It's a false positive generated by the heuristics of WD and MSE following a recent update to their Definitions.

Some have had success in reverting to 4.0.14 until this is resolved, but while 4.0.15 is perfectly safe, if an AV program is kicking it out then if you need to run the program, you can do so but it would mean downloading and running it in Safe Mode with Networking each time or just using 4.0.14.

I don't know why this affects 4.0.15 and not 4.0.14.

From a post submitted by jpm, I understand that either he or Shane will be taking this up with MS but as to when it will be resolved, I don't know.

You can download earlier versions of WR by clicking on the links on the right from https://filehippo.com/download_tweaking-com-windows-repair/
