Issue:

My antivirus software flagging SayIt as a threat?

Antivirus programs are not perfect. They sometimes fail to block harmful software, and they sometimes flag legitimate software (like SayIt) as harmful. These are known as "false positives".
(For more information about false positives, see https://blog.malwarebytes.com/security-world/2017/09/explained-false-positives/)

What to do:

In some antivirus programs you can add an exception to the antivirus software so that it does not continue to flag SayIt. In others, you may need to unblock (or allow) the SayIt file. This is also called "whitelisting". You may need to do a Google search to find out how to whitelist files for your specific antivirus software.

Specific directories to whitelist for the Java Web Start version of SayIt include:

  • C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp\sayit_shortcuts
  • C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp\sayit_html_script
  • C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp\sayit_autoit_hook
  • C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp\sayitresosurces

If SayIt was launched from an executable file instead of with Java Web Start, whitelist the directory below instead:

  • C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\nVoq\*
