I tried install the newest version of ReShade but my BitDefender antivirus keeps blocking and deleting the installation file.
In the BitDefender activity log it registers as a Gen:Suspicious.Cloud.2.9p0@aie7sc
Do any of you have this issue? is the last version safe?

It's safe. Started using today.

For reasons like this, I just use the default Windows Defender antivirus. The others like Bitdefender and Avast are overbearing mothers.

Some antivirus flag files that are new and therefore have no widespread usage with the users of that antivirus as suspicious. You can either wait a few weeks for the antivirus to realize the file has a large userbase and is totally safe, or run it through VirusTotal and see the same, or notice that ReShade is open source anyway, or just trust that it's safe (which it is).

Kaspersky is deleting this immediately as a virus with

Trojan.Win32.Shelma.vnx

Kaspersky is also detecting it as a virus.

I can reproduce this now.

It started to happen with the following changes: github.com/crosire/reshade/commit/975994...bd121d57aad3c7fcc0d8 .
Not sure what's going on here. I managed to fix a few AntiVirus software from raising the alarm with the following changes: github.com/crosire/reshade/commit/067134...8af147eb6e648ea72cc2 . Uploaded a build with that in. Kaspersky still doesn't like it though.

Well Kaspersky somehow accidentally sent some classified NSA documents over to their HQ in Russia when the NSA agent using it tried to pirate Microsoft Office and got some malware.

Surprised Avast didn't have a fit. That one locked down my whole PC when I tried installing a nightly build of GIMP...

Hi. Any progress about the Kaspersky problem?
My Kaspersky AV still blocks the download and version 3.0.8 crashes Assassines Creed Origins since I´m using a new Windows... don´t know why, but it looks like the new reshade files (dxgi.dll) dosn´t fit / work any more :blink:
