Re: NVDA Remote Infected?


I had a similar error on a client's computer I was working on a few months ago (maybe six). It turned out that their web browser was infected with a virus, but somehow that effected the add-on with a false positive. I suspect it has to do with the nvdaremote:// URI scheme and how it works, but I've never bothered investigating further due to (1) a lack of knowledge, and (2) the issue going away once I removed the virus from the infected browser, Google Chrome on that case.

If not, I'm wondering if there is potential that
globalPlugins\remoteClient\url_handler.exe is infected?

Either way, this add-on is currently not installable on Windows 10.
