Almost all antivirus software threat all miners as  - dangerous software, cause it could be used as  viral miner.
so antiviruses do not sort miners for good or bad..  so you can't do anything about it.. just accept it

2 months ago I found on my computer usually for mining software using browser then I uninstall a browser or you can check in service if you see any unusual program you have to kill it if downloading any mining software must be downloaded on the official web or viewed in this forum.

Stop my antivirus and try to open this miner software its open. After a few time start my antivirus then again detect that virus. Its not a simple virus >>Malware virus<< Detect. So what can i do?

Like what others have already said, it is a false alarm. All miners are seen as "malware" because they use your CPU resources. But you have nothing to worry about as long as you download well-known miners from the official source.

Most well-known is Claymore's miner or EWBF/DSTM miners which can be downloaded from these forums directly.

As long as you download the file from github website, i think it's safe from virus / malware. Usually it happens because antivirus detects batch file open port command can make system security open / weak, so that's detected as virus / malware. The solution is i usually allow the antivirus not detect it, you can setting from antivirus exceptions file / folder section.

yeah, that's a false alarm, do not worry if you download on the official web because when I first mine I have same a problem (if a case of Claymore) and I have a suggestion for miner better mining rig don't use for anything except only mining software such Claymore, atikmdag, GPU-Z.

I'm starting to think though that AV's don't trust crypto's as a default  Cheesy

Can't blame them, as these miners are also susceptible to attacks if not properly configured

so if you trust your miner, add them in AV exceptions

Be careful where you are downloading your mining software from.

It is almost certain that your AV will complain, so you have to ensure and you have to do everything in your power to download your miners from a reputable website. Even then, there is no guarantee, as even Github gets hacked from time to time.

If you can, download the source, inspect the source, and compile the miner on your own machine. It might sound complicated but it's doable.

Then, after you have made these precautions, you can disable the AV software specifically for the miner.

Otherwise you never know if you have downloaded a virus, even if most of the time the AV alert is a false positive.

Windows defender is intended for noobs so it pretty much tags all miners as a virus and quarantines them.  So if you are running windows defender you need to create exclusions.

The AV I use most is Sophos and it doesn't usually do that.  It flags them all as PUPs (potentially unwanted program) so you can decide what to do with it.  That classification is more honest, it recognizes the fact that maybe it's there because you wanted it there or maybe it's there because of malware but the AV doesn't know for sure.  I still have to make an exclusion to stop it from popping up with warnings but it doesn't usually quarantine them straight away like windows defender does (although truthfully it is a bit inconsistent and occasionally some of them do go straight to quarantine).

Newer AV's are moving towards behavioral scanning techniques so they can spot programs that aren't in the virus definitions so if they see something peg the CPU at 100% for an extended period that could certainly look suspicious.

Use opensource software, if the software is not opensource I think they instill malware or trojan, be careful using software that is not opensource, if you using software not opensource, you can check the software on virustotal.com
