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.

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.

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 tixati.com 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.
