Hey, I am having trouble downloading the new launcher 1.6.1. I have tried many times but says it is a virus and was deleted I will put it in quotes. " Minecraft.exe contained a virus and was deleted. " I know it is not a virus. I have tried so much and it got me frustrated. I am looking for support on this problem. If you can help me I will really appreciate it. Please I am looking for help. The antivirus is McAfee. I would love to stay on this server so please help me because I love this server and I don't want to leave it as a memory. <3 Veterancraft    Frown

Well right now we are still on 1.5, so it shouldn't be a problem. :)  Just use the old launcher for now.

As far as the "virus" is concerned, I don't know McAfee, but it sounds like you need to list it as "trusted" or somesuch.  First though, make sure that you're getting the new launcher from Mojang, not a torrent or anything.

best answer? uninstall McAfee, and burn all remnants of it.

There are 3 steps one must take to profit in today's economy: 1.) Learn from lessons taught by others 2.) Don't give away everything you know.

I like AVG. It's free, it's continuously updated, and it knows the difference between Minecraft and Trojan.mini/Z.

Well I wish this was my PC because this is my brothers PC. Any other ideas guys? If I uninstall it my brother and sister will kill me for that. Can I turn my firewall off? My firewall says it's off but I don't know. It say's Firewall: On. Then when I click on it's firewall settings it say's firewall off. It's really confusing. It say's it's from s3.amazonaws.com Is that website safe? Thank you again for helping.Confused

That site is definitely safe - it's part of Amazon's cloud computing system. You might want to set it as an exception in McAfee (how? no idea).

I found out how to put in exceptions list but when I try to turn on the firewall it goes off automatically. The firewall is the key to exceptions. Please find some links of how to turn it on and leave it on. I can't believe the firewall is the key. I think I am a step closer to downloading the new launcher. Please help.SmileSurprised

Is the Mojang or minecraft website down? Perhaps that can be the problem. Any ideas?
