So I've white listed about everything I can seem to find in my MQ folder and this still pops up every time I run the launch, every time it's a different name. Is this the new normal? I mean I can just continue to punch the allow button every log in but can't figure out how to make it not do it is annoying.

Yeah, googling how to do that I have tried everything I found to make it not look there. It's still looking so I'm missing something lol.yes. mq is trying to help you.
whitelist your mq folder - the entire folder. you don't need to go through item by item. the whole thing
"hey computer, see this folder? no you dont!"
That sounds sketchy... Things don't just rename themselves randomly and it was not expected.... I can't even imagine a shitty coder achieving this by accident.I'm aware, I'm saying it isn't intended.
edit: I'm told that its intentional, but the side effects aren't, or weren't expected. Its being looked into.
Gotcha, thanks for the explanation.The copying was intentional. It's not comparing anything to see if the files are different, so it’s just copying over a new one each time. The part brainiac is talking about being unexpected is Windows defender popping up every time. In the short term, if it’s an issue for you, you can just create a shortcut to whatever exe was created.
The version file also needs to be updated to add publisher so it doesn’t say “Unknown.”
But I’ll be fixing both of those this evening.
They rename themselves randomly when you don't want something looking for MQbootfile.exe. Renaming the file periodically is a method to avoid detection.That sounds sketchy...

yes. mq is trying to help you.Only started over the last couple of days, but I'm now getting a Windows firewall access request for C:\games\mqnext\lxxmdjox.exe
Anyone shed any light please? Is this a "standard" MQ file or......
Stop watching porn bro...you've got digital std...JK! Let MQ help you...I was away for a couple weeks, and upon return saw that DB did their update.... when I tried to "reinstall" MQ2, my anti-virus (Bitdefender) flagged a file in "C:\Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\VeryVanilla\MacroQuest\Release" as Malware. The filename is "slvlDl9a.exe". It also flagged files eqgame.exe, RedGuideLauncher.exe, MacroQuest.exe, mq_crash_handler.exe, and crashpad_handler.exe.
I had to completely delete my current VeryVanilla and the offending .exe's in EQ directory to make it work (I was also denied connection to the login server while I was infected).
After a few hours, i saw that the Malware file, slDLvl9a.exe, showed up again in the MQ2 directory.
FYI, there was another weird file showing up in the re-installed MQ2 directory, named "Oiiibvck.exe". This filename did not show up in the old version of MQ2. I renamed it to a ".bak" file, just to be safe.
Any thoughts or similar issues out there?
