Anti-virus preventing ZWave to work


Running openHAB 1.8.3 on Windows 10. Windows Defender anti-virus quarantines libNRJavaSerial.dll created at openHAB startup in C:…\Temp\libNRJavaSerial_Domus_0 folder (detected as Trojan:Win32/Peals.A!cl).
This prevents opening communication with ZWave USB stick.

I tried setting exclusion to the openHAB path without success. I don’t like the idea of disabling antivirus.

Any advice ?

Thank you in advance!

You can just exclude that one file instead of the full folder. Beyond that the only thing you can do is run some other antivirus that does not flag and quarantine that file.

I excluded the file and it is working. Nice.
