No, it doesn't matter where you have Blackbox. I have the same trouble on drive d:\BlackBox and also with usb-sticks u:\BlackBox.
Even in Backups the file BlackBox.exe was deleted.
Today I download BlackBox Stable version 1.7 as Zip file from the framework site but I could not unpack the zip file, because the windows 10 defender says it is a virus.
Only on Linux (Ubuntu) I have not this kind of problem.

This week I found the website

and I get the rate of 914 from 30 down to 20 by writing e-mails and fill out web forms for 914 only.

At the same time I observe 915 and do no reports.

MalwareBytes has quaranteed the 878 build on my machine.
Even after I said to ignore the quarantee it seems to have deleted the .exe.
I'll have to roll back to the last stable release.

Maybe? You can always try downloading 878 again.

But the relevant question is: "Do we know which releases are safe from false positives?" Is the last stable safe? Is the next unstable unsafe?
It seems to me that the versions that are accepted by the virus checkers are changing on a daily basis; versions that were safe last week are not safe today.

Chris, you are a lucky man.
I can't unpack and run 915 under Windows 10, because the defender stops the operation.
The Threat definition version of Defender is 1.2449.990.0
Only under Ubuntu I can use it.

Please have a look for 915 at

The rate increase from 12 to 34 in 4 days. We have a new record: The detection ratio is 34 of 64 on 13.08.2017

The rate decrease from 30 to 20. Do you know why? Don Quichotte is fighting against windmill with 914 since 7th of August and did nothing with 915.
