file deletion apon execution
« on: August 08, 2013, 07:06:07 AM »
Hi

I built a simple opengl program with visual studio 2012, but when I run the debug
version of it, it gets deleted and windows reports that it cannot find the file specified.
When I disable avast it runs fine.
What is happening? Avast gives no indication that it is doing anything.

hi eold012,

I think you mean that avast! is blocking execution of the debug program, moving it to avast! quarantine, and then windows can't find the file.  You then restore a backup copy and disable avast! and it runs fine in debug?

Apparently yes, I checked the virus chest and it had been moved there.
I scanned the file and avast didnt find any viruses (of course), but when I run it
avast keeps moving it to the virus chest.
Is there any way I can stop it from doing this?

NP

I'd be interested to know what Virus Total dot com has to say about your program:  https://www.virustotal.com/en/  or  VirSCAN dot org:  http://r.virscan.org/  or jotti dot org:  http://virusscan.jotti.org/en  Maybe it is the debugger?

Its a very strange set of circumstances that this happens,
only when compiling in "debug" (against the debug versions of the windows libraries,
and without optimisation) and when linking with http://www.glfw.org/
and http://glew.sourceforge.net/

Surely avast! doesn't just delete the file for no reason at all and without notifying you. What was the detection name in the virus chest?
