Not a bug

Thank you for the report.

I don't see the detection on my computer, and it's not detected by Microsoft on VirusTotal.

There can be several reasons for the detection you see:

  • One is that this is a false positive detection. False positives are unfortunately common for new versions of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. Please see the FAQ here and this blog post.
  • The other is that your file is indeed infected. This can happen if you downloaded it on a third party website, or if another malware on your computer infected it. I highly doubt that this is the case, since 5.8 is a relatively new version, and false positives are so common for it.

In any case, if you have any doubt, you can contact Microsoft about it and assure that the file you posses is clean. I guarantee that the files that are served from the official 7+ Taskbar Tweaker website are 100% virus free.

I also got a Windows Defender alert for Trojan:Win32/Spursint.F!cl as soon as I downloaded:

7tt_setup_beta.exe

So I deleted it.

I downloaded the non Beta general release version & it was fine.

I'm using the latest version of Windows 10, 64bit.

Hope this is of help & thanks for the excellent Taskbar Tweaker!
