Windows commands stopped working.
« on: December 08, 2017, 09:15:09 AM »

For a few days now I've had this issue.
Since I'm always programing and testing things with Windows commands in AHP I figured it was a issue in my code or a typo in the command.
Many times I had to disable my Avast shields for testing but never had issues with AHP.
Today after a reboot Alex10 failed to load it's configuration file as did the HA-Bridge.
Others have reported Windows defender deleting the Alex10 folder or reporting it  as malicious.
I now suspect my Antivirus  is blocking these Windows commands in AHP from firing.
I added exclusions for some of these and they are now working so if anyone else finds your windows command macros are failing this may be the reason.
Interestingly not all commands were being blocked even if they were pointing at the same program ::) :'

I moved my AHP and BVC PC off-line a long time ago. No connectivity, no sharing, password protected, no up-dates, no antivirus, permissions extremely limited.
