    Minitool Partition Wizard Triggers Defender Virus Alert


    I just tried to upgrade to Partition Wizard v11 from MiniTool's web site, The file downloads OK but triggers a serious virus alert in Defender (see below).

    I suspect this is a false positive but I've no wish to test that hypothesis.

    Beware of Minitool Partition Wizard Bearing Threats


    I've been using Minitool Partition Wizard (MPW) 10.2. Today I let it auto update to 10.3 but Defender stopped the update and found a 'virus' to quarantine (see below).

    I worked out this is because McAfee software is bundled with the installer. I downloaded the full installer which triggered the virus alert again but I said no to the McAfee software licence. MPW 10.3 then installed OK.

    I've left a support request with MiniTool stating my opinion of their shambolic update software.

    Windows Defender / MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 10.3


    For a week or so, Malwarebytes 3.5.1 (Paid) has been going off when opening MinTool Partition Wizard Free (10.2) and I wasn't to concerned about it. Today MiniTool Partition Wizard Free tried to update to 10.3 and Windows Defender went off on it, so not to sure what to think about it now *Sad

    Windows Defender - Behavior:Win32/InstallCore.E threat description - Windows Defender Security Intelligence
    Virus Total shows it flagged as well on a couple of AVs - https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/3c...3eb8/detection


    UPDATE:
    1. Decided to allow it and see what happens. McAfee Web Advisor is now included and you can opt out of installing
    2. Updated Malwarebytes just now to 3.6.1 (paid) and it's still flagging it.
