Antivirus software

This is a list of known antivirus software that is compatible with Plucky as well which ones to avoid because of incompatibility. Using an incompatible antivirus with Plucky will typically lead to a broken install in which none of Plucky’s features (system, delay, etc.) work, configuring rules doesn’t work, and the uninstall button doesn’t work. Yikes.

This list is being continually updated. If you have success (or miserable failure) with a product that isn’t listed below, let us know!

My antivirus detected plucky as malware!

Sometimes Plucky gets falsely flagged as malware. If this happens, please consider filing a false positive file report with the antivirus in question and let us know which antivirus so we can do the same (and update this page).
