Cannot Install Tixati Due to Trojan\Detplock

by Guest on 2021/03/25 12:39:42 AM    
Windows no longer allows tixati.exe as it detects Trojan\Detplock. I guess Tixati is no longer a trusted option? The installer has been compromised?

If you download Tixati from the Tixati website it is 100% without viruses or trojans. The installer has not been compromised.

Microsoft's Anti-Virus application is now recognizing Tixati as a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) and will delete Tixati from your computer unless you go into the anti-virus exclusions and exclude it from the Anti-Virus scan. Again, the AV programmers wish to treat us a children that cannot be trusted to decide what we want and what we do not want.

The PUA is completely different. The current download is detected as Trojan\Detplock. That's not MS detecting the app as potentially unwanted. That's a signature match to a known Trojan.

As I said before:

Janet, how about a pinned post explaining that MS has listed not only Tix, but also other torrent clients, just to clarify that this is something MS is doing with no reason whatsoever, I know that most people do not read pinned posts, but some people still read them, even if it's only the title.

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:

What is it that you guys are missing here? This has nothing to do with previous reports of Microsoft's PUA warning. This is Windows Defender, Norton, and BitDefender have all detected the tixati.exe I downloaded directly from as Trojan\Detplock based on a signature match. I've reproduced this on a brand new install of Windows 10. Tixati literally cannot be installed. The second the installer finishes Defender deletes the file. No option to manually allow. I tried disabling Defender and tested with Norton Security and BitDefender and got the same results.
