    After I installed VorpX onto my system, Windows Defender claims that I have a Trojan called Wacatac.B!ml in my Win32 sub folder relating to infected items relating to VorpX installation.

    file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Animation Labs\vorpX\vorpControl.exe
    file: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\vorpX\Start vorpX.lnk
    file: C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Start vorpX.lnk
    startup: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\vorpX\Start vorpX.lnk

    Is this a false positive? as when I ask to remove it, it deletes VorpX and I cannot use it?

    Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.


    This is a false positive.

    First please try a manual update check in the Windows settings app. I don’t think this should occur with the latest Windows Defender definitions. Scanning the whole vorpX folder with the latest definitions from today (1.329.1307.0) does not cause any positive detection.

    If that does not help you, please exclude the vorpX program folder from your AV scanner.
