Does You AV Software Block Downloads??

This is just courtesy post I'm hearing reports of AV software blocking legitimate downloads.

I stopped using mainstream Antivirus Software at least 5 years ago  (Kaspersky, Norton, AVG) are the main Culprits

Windows Defender does a good enough job at keeping my PC safe and it shouldn't block any downloads.

I've NOT had a virus warning since I switched to just using WD (I deep Scan once a month)

I find after you add the RadioDJ folder to exclude list in Windows 10 RadioDJ plays away quite nicely

IF YOUR AV SOFTWARE DOESN'T LET YOU DOWNLOAD STUFF THEN BIN IT OFF!

(There's really no need for AV software on a production machine that's my opinion)

Exactly you don't need any AV Software in your computer. Just use the Windows Security of Windows 10/11 and add the RDJ folder to the exclusions list. That's all.

You can just use Sandboxie to protect yourself from harmful software, everything that you think is suspicious can be run in it and if it starts to act up just turn off the program in Sandboxie.
