    loaded up latest version 2.8.3 and computer started to work very slow with all sorts of problems, did virus scan and it showed a trojan virus which has proved difficult to get rid of, reset computer back to a point before download all seems ok now but did find the programme very useful and would like to use it again but very reluctant to.

    Don't mean to change the thread, however under "Settings/Wanted US State/Enable Wanted US State Alert", per the instructions I am looking for a proper US Callsign database file to install. That way, won't have to tediously click and click to determine the station's QTH.
    Thanks, 73 de

    Gee, I use Windows 10 and the anti virus program (Essentials) without any problems. I do use WSJT-X and JT-65.

    I have been using JT Alert-X v 2.9 for a few weeks now and am having a problem getting it to remember the settings for states worked, countries worked etc. etc.

    Think I figured out what it causing it but don't like the only cure I see. When I delete my .adif file after insuring it has logged to QRZ, LOTW and eQSL as I did with an older version, it deletes my settings also. The only cure I see is not delete my log but that creates lots and lots of duplicates which, eventually, is going to slow down the logging system. The older version would create to log files, one was a .log and the other was a .adif. The .log file would stay and all was good.

    That was JT-Alert v1.7 and JT-AlertX v 2.9

    Have you actually experienced this slowdown? I've been using wsjt-x for six months. What should I be seeing? JT65 decodes scroll the screen & fill up jtalertx's boxes. What up?

    FYI re Norton and WSJT-X--it is theoretically possible to exclude a download from scans. This worked for me for JTAlert but not for the 1.8 beta version of WSJT-X. I contacted Norton yesterday (31 Aug) to report the false positive. They got back to me today saying that it is now approved to clear scans but it may take 24 hours for Live Update to get to me.

    Update: I ran Live Update, rebooted, and was able to download wsjt-x 1.8 rc. ALSO: LOTW accepts FT8 as a mode.
