Antivirus says LOOT is unsafe. SOLVED
So I ran LOOT after installing a new mod today and noticed that it has an updated version. When I clicked on the installer, I get a message saying that LOOT installer is unsafe and has been removed. How can I load the updated version?

Has anyone else had this problem?

I've used LOOT/BOSS for a while now without any issues. If I have a computer issue, it most likely results from something I've done or another program.

the thing about 3rd party av is that they have to come up with some threat warnings or people think they dont do anything , they need the constant threat,and they like to tell you about it so you wont quit using them . i got win 8 when it came out and have since upgraded to 8.1 , it's very stable , runs everything i ask it to , and i only use the built in anti-virus and malware , i have never gotten a false positive or had a game blocked because of it , and most important i havent had a virus or any malicious software hijack my rig , it's small and unobtrusive , it's all i need , i keep it up to date and i never have to worry about it , dump avg or norton let windows take care of itself , but then i dont run torrents or download pirated software

It says it is infected with something called Suspicious.Cloud.7.EP. After doing some research I found. "Suspicious.Cloud.7.EP is a kernel-mode rootkit, similar in ethos to the TDL family of rootkits. It uses advanced techniques to hide its presence, is capable of functioning on both 32 and 64-bit flavors of Windows from a single installer, contains aggressive self defense functionality and acts as a sophisticated delivery platform for other malware."

It's probably a false positive what AV are you using?

It’s a known False Positive detection for Norton Antivirus.

I'm married to an Electrical Engineer who builds security computers for the government and all of our machines have Norton, McAfee, and custom made firewall and AV software. Is it possible that my AV is detecting something that others are not?

Maybe it is detecting to much ....

I had it happen to me once. I thought it was a false positive because of what I read on forums.
After installing the mod I was being redirected to sites on the internet and computer performance dropped dramatically.

It could have been a coincidence but I am more cautious now.

We are speaking about LOOT. Not some mod.

Nexus have had 2 insidents with viruses: one from advetisement company (no longer around) and one from maliciouos hacker (took about hour to fix.) Neither of them fit to description of this mysterious "mod" you mentioned, behind your private profile.

I have to be extra careful. We are on an LAN and if I download something and it gets to one of his security computers you can not imagine the kind of ♥♥♥♥ed off backlash I would get. Just to give you an idea. He has backups of backups kept under lock and key.

Damn, McAfee is squaking about it now. I guess I'll pass on the update for now. I'm going to the LOOT forum and look again. Thanks for all advise.

Well, after consulting with my family "expert". I found out that he activated an old AV to test another software over the weekend. He has all our AV's "talking to each other" (then an explination of stuff that went over my head). Long story short. I have to wait for him to get home and fix it before I can download anything. Sorry for wasting everyone's time.

*Sigh* This kind of stuff happens all the time when you're married to a genius engineer.
