Smart Defrag v8.0 blocked by AVAST antivirus software


Recommended Posts


When I attempt to install Smart Defrag v8.0 on my laptops, my AVAST antivirus software stops the installation process with the following Threat Block alert message:

"We've blocked smart-defrag-setup.tmp because it was infected with IDP.Generic."

Attached below is a screen capture of the Threat Blocked alert message. Please advise if this threat is real or a false alarm. Thank you!

I had same problem when I downloaded from MajorGeeks - https://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/getmirror/iobit_smartdefrag,1.html

the download listed on my Firefox as "smart-defrag-setup".  Clicking on this only opened my downloads folder.


When I followed your suggested link, and downloaded from iobit.com - https://cdn.iobit.com/dl/smart-defrag-setup.exe

it appeared on Firefox downloads as "smart-defrag-setup.exe"  Clicking on this opened SmartDefrag Installer - success, thankyou!


I'm no geek - did my installed AVG remove the .exe to block it; or is there a fault on MajorGeeks?
