I'm unable to even download the new version of reshade
I've updated to the new Windows 10 1803 update with all new updated Windows Defender and it's saying the reshade 3.4.0 setup.exe is a trojan and immediately removing and quarantining it.
All previous versions of Reshade never had this issue for me until this new one. I saw crosire's post about it needing a few days before it's flagged as being safe but wondering if there is any quick work around instead of waiting for Microsoft to get their act together since their updates and support have been nothing but incompetent these days. Their latest 1803 update forced me to delete my old C: drive and do a clean install of Windows 10
A bunch of people here have been experiencing the same thing, please fix!
(taken from earlier post, but same thing I'm going through)
Cross, how about, you know - after release of each new official version, you submit it for approval to all of popular anti cheat software vendors? Maybe you can automate it?
And for got sake - please removed this lame "network activity detection = disable of back buffer things" - I told you million times, it useless for cheaters, it's easily detectable and nobody would use reshade for cheating - but almost every even single player have some network features, and in many of them got depth buffer locked for no reason, for example nier automata makes network traffic to send and receive updates of location of dead bodies of players you can recover - and every time it sends or receives network data - backbuffer gets locked, and if you play for example with MXAO you start to witness AO flickering and how it gets disabled and then reenabled, similar thing happens with Watch-DOgs 2 (well it used to happen when reshade was white listed, new versions seems to be never sent to approval so non of ubi games now works with reshade as they all block it, despite you made block of back buffer on network activity) - your anticheat measures are useless and only hurting users of reshade. For example I want to play CS and other Source based game with their flat look with MXAO online, and it's ain't cheating, why I'm forced out of this option? Valve, Easy Anti Cheat and BattleEye can deal with their own anti-cheat measures, and they are no idiots and can tell the difference between graphics improvement and cheating, and most of people would not even risk to play online with reshade, so back buffer locking on network activity need to be removed for good, or at least should be a togglebable option in reshade UI or at least INI (psst, you know, like undocumented feature for users to use on their own risk?).
Cheaters are also not so dumb to use reshade - common, they make their own or buy ready to use undectable cheats where a lot of work was put into hiding of cheating, and reshade does not hide anything, so cheaters even if 1 of million idiots will try to use it, will be easily detected and will get individual punishment with out full scale ban of reshade itself.
So before sending next version for approval remove this backbuffer locking please.
And if you have no time to submit every new version of reshade for approval to all anti cheats and popular online games with their own anti-cheat - let's organize a thread and call for volunteers that will submit and lobby every new version for approval to all anticheats and popular games, with support of crowd of reshade fans this will be easy, but you need to organize this crowd and call for actions every time you release a new version. Also you know, it would be good idea to make a warning for devs of anti cheat and games that reshade can't be used for cheating, very popular thing and that you call them for cooperation and automation of approval of new versions. Reshade is popular enough for this to get noticed by devs.
About all the worries on the last version of ReShade potentially containing malware... don't worry. It IS a false positive, 100%.
Just try uploading the installer to VirusTotal. Out of 67 AVs, only 4 (Windows Defender among them) detect it as malicious software, and if you pay attention all of these detect it with generic names that are obviously heuristics detection. Kaspersky, Malwarebytes and TrendMicro (my favorites) all say it's safe. Windows Defender and Symantec flag it as Bluteal... just google Bluteal and dyor:
Yes, it seems to be a false positive, but it do not happens on every rig. I am personnaly still not able to reproduce it. That's weird, or maybe i first analysed the file with an already patched version of windows defender...
Upon further analysis and investigation we have verified your submission and, as such, the detection(s) for the following file(s) will be removed from our products: File name: ReShade_Setup_3.4.0.exe Note: Whitelisting is available by downloading a RAPID RELEASE indicated in the Further Information section below or via the next Live Update Required RAPID RELEASE sequence >= 194084
Hi everyone, just updated with latest version this week and there's a little problem : don't have anymore circumflex accent in Blizzard's Game (WoW and D3 LoD). I've removed ReShade 3.4.0 and accent works again.
So I am also apparently getting a virus from this release. I've downloaded the release twice, and both times Windows Defender popped up saying I now have a trojan virus and it has quarantined it. After I delete the virus through Windows Defender I am able to install and use ReShade just fine.
I tried downloading the release again today, and all I had to do was click "Download" and I already had a virus, I didn't even have time to click 'save file'. So if I hadn't even technically downloaded the file yet, where am I getting this virus from?
There seems to be some some compatibility issues with World of Warcraft after upgrading ReShade from 3.3.2 to 3.4. First loading screens are distorted, and second when mousing over buttons in-game the screen brightness changes resulting in a flickering effect. I'll post some pictures and include my log file.
