Antivirus is such security theatre.

As the filename suggests, that's an archive I made myself, of some savegames...in the process of being backed up again, as it has been for *checks date* since 2017.

Ah, checking the date made it "detect" it in the normal on-drive version.

Now I get to play a game where it tries to quarantine it repeatedly, snatching away the UI to say "leave it alone, idiot".

All this CPU power burnt to allay an ancient fear, while the real risk these days is my browser getting confused about if a website is my bank or not.

(This is after I get paged awake because the oncall on the other shift undrained a thing that was still broken at handoff time, which at least let me catch the silence which would have expired soon after, but did nothing about my dreams transitioning from "neat speedrun" to "anxiety that the pager went and you ignored it, wake up, wake back up", or that someone decided to ring my damn intercom then run off.)
