Virus Found?

Long time user of DesMuMe here. Got a new computer and was downloading the autobuild listed on the downloads page and windows flagged it as a virus.

Is this a problem or is it overreacting. Thanks in advance.

Re: Virus Found?

Same, but nothing happen on my PC. Just clean. Maybe your PC need to clean first. Plus, make sure you download from this website.

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/zeromus … /artifacts

This website here.... https://buildbot.orphis.net/desmume/ ... wa outdated. Use latest version. Anyway, it was FALSE POSITIVE if found anything.

Re: Virus Found?

Same problem with build 0.0.0.729, 0.0.0.730, and several others (from ci.appveyor.com)
https://i.paste.pics/755209bca5915bd0ea … a3d494.png

Some latest builds are detected as virus and some arent
0.0.0.718, 0.0.0.719 = clean
0.0.0.720, 0.0.0.721 = virus detected

Win10x64 20H2 fully updated, Windows Defender antivirus

Re: Virus Found?

But, Zeromus check it also myself for scanning this program with Virus Total. Results...

Re: Virus Found?

I'm also having the same problem, Windows Defender flags it as "Trojan:Win32/Spursint.F!cl".

Re: Virus Found?

relax people this is normal.  my avast software does the same thing all the time i have to temporary disable it so it doesn't interfere with desmume.  you can use a site called virus total to scan desmume if you want but its safe.

btw if any one if having issue with their PC, run adwcleaner  to clean up adware and bloutware  tfc.exe (by oldtimer) to clear up space on your drive  and then malwarebytes to clean up and remaining adware and viruses.  if you are still having issues after that you might want to run tweaking windows repair AIO  (this will fix any corruption left by viruses.)

hope that helps.
