Avast! Free Antivirus false positive UnrealBuildTool.exe
Avast! Free Antivirus gave me a false positive on UnrealBuildTool.exe
Program version: 2014.9.0.2018
I installed the virusscanner after Unreal, I switched virus scanner basically. Threw AVG off and put this on. It updated to the version mentioned above and did a full computer scan. Giving these 2 threats. This also means that no exceptions were added to Avast. Clean, out of the box (updated to last version).

Please add the unreal engine and unreal build tool .exe files to the list of exceptions, that should fix this.

Hello , Open the Avast user interface and go to Settings » General Find the tab Exclusions and add specific programs(unrealbuildtool.exe) to the File paths tab Added applications and/or paths will now be excluded from any Avast scanning. Antivirus software is bigger virus.
