Bitdefender started to mess with me. When I launch RG App/MQ2, BD says its a virus and stops MQ from booting? And ideas? Thanks so much!
you should consider exempting mq and eq from antivirus and other things that scan or can otherwise hold your files hostage.Bitdefender started to mess with me. When I launch RG App/MQ2, BD says its a virus and stops MQ from booting? And ideas? Thanks so much!

Sounds like you have files locked in quarantineWell I added some exemptions and now it says this, and i tried to download the files again from the website. The .exe is now MIA. @Sic
The exe name is going to change.
The mq and eq folders should cover the stuff inside them, like the various files that will have name chqnges
uhhhh that seems to be going hard..I bought Bitdefender thinking it will keep my PC safe - what a mistake that was.
I am by no means a tech savvy guy - BitDefender has now taken my PC hostage lol, I cannot for the life of me to get Redguides launcher to work.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the launcher - I have nothing in the quarantine folder and have uninstalled BitDefender from my PC but to yet no avail the launcher wont even load
My next step is to buy a new SSD and windows
I tried running as Admin and normal but to no successThis is just a shot in the dark, but try installing Red Guides as an Administrator or if that doesn't work, then try it normal.
If both of those fail, we'll have to start with some basic Stuff.
What version of windows are you on?
I checked for rollbacks and restore points ~ I only use this PC for EQ so i'm game for anythingSee if you have any restore points before installing bit defender, if so you can try to do a rollback.
I double click on the Redguides launcher and I get a User Account Control message asking if i want testrunner.exe to make changes to my device and i click YES but nothing happensNext up, do a full reboot (I know you've probally done this a few times already but just so we are working on the same page)
Just to be on the safe side, turn off windows defender for a moment.
It turn back on after I wanna say 24 hours if you care...
- Select Start and type "Windows Security" to search for that app.
- Select the Windows Security app from the search results, go to Virus & threat protection, and under Virus & threat protection settings select Manage settings.
- Switch Real-time protection to Off.
Try starting it now
If it doesn't work, describe what does happen, do you get an error message just opens then close's... etc.

Bitdefender is super aggressive, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to antivirus. The first thing to do after you do your exemptions is to reboot. Then recover the files from your quarantine (or just redownload them).
