If you see something like this when installing DRE, this is a false-positive for the Windows Defender Antivirus.
The reason why DRE gets these flags, I believe, is its nature of logging user-defined key-presses to send forward to the sim. A lot of viruses use keylogging for malicious purposes, and understandably it’s difficult for virus scanners to tell them apart.
To clear the DRE installer, do the following:
- Open Windows Update by searching for Updates in Windows Start Menu
- Click the
Check for updates
- Windows will now download the latest Anti-virus info which should clear the DRE installer
- You can now try install DRE again
- If the app is still marked as a threat, delete the DRE installer, and download it again and retry
Usually clearing the DRE installer takes 4-8 hours from upload, and Microsoft usually quickly “flushes” the outdated anti-virus information on your machine, so if it doesn’t work immediately, try a restart or wait a day.
