  • AVG kills HS3

    I have just had my AVG free antiviral software decide that HS3.exe contains a virus and it removed it to quarantine. When I replaced it, it did it again.
    I have had to replace AVG with another antiviral.
    Anyone else seeing this?

      AVG kills HS3

      This is a common problem with many of the applications I use at home. Most of those free applications assume the computer is a web browsing machine and are not aware of 3rd party services that you want to run in the background 24x7. What's more HS3 may do weird stuff like control a USB device, or run pings to a node on your network. To a simple AV tool this could look nefarious. I would recommend creating exclusions for the DB Files, and executables related to HS3 and its plugins.

        Same with Norton

        ...but I just excluded the Homeseer /HSTouch directories and their backup directories on a separate server. Relatively easy in Norton; it just skips over the directories...otherwise the heuristics picks up and quarantines a load of different files.
