Over the last month McAfee has started recognizing Aurora.exe as a virus. Never happened to me before, have always run McAfee with Aurora. My Aurora is installed as C:\Aurora. I keep restoring it but only once have I managed to run Aurora

McAfee classes it as:

           Virus details
           Real Protect - PEFT!38E6B72DD704
           C:\Aurora\Aurora.exe

I agree... I even stopped using AV applications eons ago as they are just bloatware if you know what you are doing. I have been a computer engineer pretty much all my life. I used to give it to my family members though who I did not trust to handle stuff properly, but today Windows Defender is good enough... have not installed any AV applications on any computers for many years.

Yup, absolutely agree. Just uninstall your AV, they are pretty much useless now and just make life more difficult.
