  • Dependent on your virus protection you need to either exclude the main folder for your projects e.g. I have a folder named C:\DotNetLand, using Norton security I exempt that folder of about 1,000 project. You could also simple exclude that project folder and sub-folders. This would take care of your problem doing similar actions for your virus program.

  • Either change the name of your program or if it is an embedded file, then look for "virus in Pacman" using a browser.

  • I wouldn't call it "resolved", but it's a workaround, I guess. Still don't understand why Microsoft Security picked it up as virus.

  • Thanks for the suggestion.

    I use Microsoft's Virus & threat protection comes with Windows 10 and don't know how to exclude my dev folder from it.

    For now, I have no choice but to "allow" the virus to exist on my system. I am afraid of the risk I am taking if the real virus shows up. :(
