Whitelisting. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have written a program with 13 separate modules.

    I haven't signed them, does this make a difference to anti virus software ?

    I also got the programs whitelisted by Norton but it seems they only white list executables.

    For some reason a .html file is being deleted by some anti virus programs.

    Clearly there are many anti virus vendors, do  I have to get whitelisted with every one each time I make a change ?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

  • Hi n.Wright,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    What anti virus programs do you use?

    >> For some reason a .html file is being deleted by some anti virus programs.

    Is the anti virus only deleted the .html file? If it only deleted the .html file, I suggest you could check the security of .html file.

    Please try to add trust relationship to the .html file, check the result. If the .html file still be delete, I suggest you could contact the antivirus software company. Since this forum is discussing Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor. If you have any questions about the VS IDE, welcome to posted here, Microsoft engineers will help you solve the problem.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Regards,

  • What is happening is a set of files are being installed by a C# program.

    As the files are copied from CDROM to hard disc the anti virus is taking the first file which is manual.html and deleting it and killing the copy process.

  • Hi n.Wright,

    Based on my understanding, your problem might be caused by the detection rules of
    antivirus software
    . I’m sorry that I don’t know how the antivirus software definition virus and detection files, and since this forum is discussing Visual Studio IDE problems, I suggest you could get the professional answer from the related anti-virus forum.

    Thanks for your understanding.
