Avast Antivirus - FALSE POSITIVE

Recommended Posts

FYI - some Anti-Virus software (like Avest for example) may give a false positive for some files in folders that Medved Trader users.  Specifically, MT has dynamic scripts for things like the Site Configurations (TD Ameritrade, Yahoo, etc) as well as for all the indicators.  Those are dynamically compiled into DLL files. It is those DLL files that may get flagged by the Antivirus software.

 

If this happens to you, please exclude the Medved Trader folder in question.  MT creates the DLL files in the following folder

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\2GK\Medved Trader\Temp\

 

Which should translate to something like

    C:\Users\<Your Windows Login Name>\AppData\Local\2GK\Medved Trader\Temp\

 

And if there is an option, include sub-directories

In the future, once we are out of beta, we will probably make it do everything in memory, but for now compiling to a local DLL file is a must.

 

FOR AVAST:  launch the program,  go to settings on the left side, then antivirus, then  exclusions and exclude the above folder
