on 3 windows computer windows defender is not allowing install of FRStack as it suspects a virus.  I found nothing regarding this via a search of the community.  I would assume others have had this issue but not seeing anything.  Anyone else been here and done this? K4JKB

    Installed fine on mine. I just opened the older version on my computer and let it do the update.

    Just because Windows Defender won't let you install doesn't mean that it is a virus.  It will also automatically block programs that don't have a history/sufficient installation base for it to recognize. There is an option to allow it to install anyway.

    This is a false positive. I submitted the exe to Microsoft so they could correct this flag. If you update to the latest defender definitions the false report will go away. Downloading FRStack from the website MKCMSoftware.com or letting the program update itself is perfectly safe.

    Have not found any virus in FRSTACK. Using McAfee virus software. Nice work Mark. When I installed FRSTACK the computer didn’t belch.
