Reporting a total blockade by windows

by Guest on 2021/03/22 10:27:33 PM    
I have had immense pleasure from Tixati. From it's design to practicality.

Today I experienced something I have never before. Windows blocked total access to Tixati.

At first I was very surprised, and then i panicked a little bit because i thought someone else had visited my pc.
Anyway, a sudden light bulb appeared above my head, and i went into windows security center. There it was, a message about a suspicious app with suspicious activity...

Here is a screenshot of the report.

This is me just reporting this incident, it might be of help to you, a developer? or someone else who might experience the same.

Anyway, I will continue to love Tixati.

Good bye

Tixati has NO spyware or adware.

It has been flagged as PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) by Microsoft's Windows Defender only because Tixati is a torrent client. Other torrent clients have also been flagged as PUA by Microsoft's Windows Defender just for being torrent clients.

Here is more information:

Is it not a simple matter of whitelisting the app?

Yes but it does have to be reinstalled. Settings were kept fine for me.

Same experience. Windows even uninstalled it good thing I didn't lose my downloads. Anyway, found a workaround. I am able to launch the 32 bit portable Tixati and able to complete downloads with it. The 64 bit still gets blocked. HTH

Microsoft said (  )
PUAs are not considered malware. Microsoft uses specific categories and the category definitions to classify software as a PUA.
Torrent software (Enterprise only): Software that is used to create or download torrents or other files specifically used with peer-to-peer file-sharing technologies.

I wonder what percentage of the Windows torrenters are not using Windows Enterprise editions.
