Asked by JonConroy on 03/20/2013 at 4:56 PM
I have a file that i want to move, which is from a trusted user, and i am not able to do anything with it because i am getting the error code 0x800700e1 - virus detected.

I am running Windows 8 64 bit, and need to know an easy way for me to bypass the error and be able to move and use the file.

    Its probably Windows defender blocking the copy. Go to the settings (Windows Defender) and add the location of the file you want to copy to the "excluded files and locations".
