What should I do? I have had a strange and erratic behavior of my hard drive when running KNIME with these extensions.

Hey @jpg,

that looks strange. We always do virus scans before shipping new software. Which anti virus tool do you use?

Best regards,

Same for me when using Windows. Bitdefender says: “Malware recognized. Knime.exe. Blocked”.
