Is/has anybody had any problems with there security software when using MFP?

Since yesterday mine is detecting malware in the program and deleting it straight away?

Hello!

There is a known issue with Norton Antivirus.

What kind of antivirus software do you have?

I'm running Malwarebytes as my anti virus.

It only happens when I delete markets from the 'my markets' tab which seems a little weird.

I've added the MFP folder to the exemptions list as a get around for the time being, I just thought if others
had similar issues I would feel more confident about leaving it like that.

Thx for your help

The markets are stored in the following folder:

c:\Users\%username%\MarketFeeder Pro 8\profiles\%profile name%\events\

Your antivirus can be reacting to files being deleted from that folder.

It might help to add this folder to the trusted list:

c:\Users\%username%\MarketFeeder Pro 8\
