    Thanks for your reply!

    I've opened "Reputation Based Protection", but I'm not sure what I need to open now???
    Go to Settings > Windows Security > Protection against virus and threats > History of protection.

    There you can review the actions that Windows Security has taken and manage them, according to the options offered.

    You're looking in the wrong place. You need to look for the folder that contained the original .exe (not any quarantine location) and if the folder is missing you need to look in the folder which is the next level up.
    So look in:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming
    open previous versions and restore Azureus folder.
    Look in:
    C:\Program Files\Azureus) or C:\Program Files\Vuze
    If not present check C:\Program Files\
    then look for those subfolders.
    Then look in:
    C:\Users\Usernam\AppData\Roaming
    Look for the folder Azureus
    RE: The above folder locations. You need to right click then select "Restore previous versions" if present.
    Thanks for your reply!

    I'm trying really hard to follow what you're saying but I'm not sure if you're asking me to open the folder location "C:\Program Files\Vuze" from within "Windows Explorer" or inside "Windows Security"?

    I'm looking at this now, but it doesn't seem to give me an option of "restoring" 'Azureus.EXE' file and it only says:
    "Detected: PUA:Win32/iBryteInstaller
    Status: Removed"


    Then it lists the affected items which includes the 'Azureus.EXE' that's been deleted...

    Refer to this:

    Restore Previous Versions of Files, Folders, and Drives in Windows 10

    3. To View Previous Versions of Folder or Drive

    If you selected Open, then you can drag and drop or copy files and folders in the previous version of the folder or drive to restore them where you want.

    So open the top level folders and see what is in them. Look for the folders that you need inside:

    C:\Program Files\

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming

    Open from restore previous versions menu in Explorer.

    Look in:

    C:\Program Files\

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming

    Then restore any Azureus or Vuze folders to their original location.

    When did you update to V2004?

    Are you within the 10 grace period to fall Back?


    Do you image your system regularly with a product like Macrium?


    Is the Windows.old folder still present on Root of C:?

    I'm following your instructions now.

    I'm looking at "Update History" now and it says that the "version 2004" update was successfully installed on 11th June 2020...

    I've been backing up my data only by just copying files/folders to an external USB HDD so no images.

    Would it help if I rebooted and finished installing my Windows 10 Pro PC with the latest Cumulative Update for June or would updating make things worse???

    EDIT:
    "Windows.old folder" is still present and I'm browsing it now. What should I be looking for?

    A reinstall of the app should work like an update and keep your settings, but add the missing portion.

    for the settings, if you have a system image and use macrium reflect, and your cpu can use a hypervisor, you can mount the the old macrium image and get the registry settings(export) from the app, and reimport them to 2004.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE
    and at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE

    Thank you!

    Do you have a guide for me to follow to re-install Vuze so I don't make a mistake? I'm just worried about damaging my torrent files.

    I'm still not sure if it's safe to reboot my Win10 PC and let it finish installing the "Cumulative June 2020 Update"?

    Thanks, but it doesn't seem like the Vuze Support forums are still maintained?

    What about me rebooting my Win10 PC and letting it finish the Cumulative June 2020 Update?
