    Default BW1000.exe disappeared

    This must just be me, or there'd be many other posts already.

    Suddenly my BW is closed and the shortcut shows dead. BW1000.exe has disappeared. It isn't in the recycle bin, and it isn't showing up anywhere else; all I've got is the Beta version, date modified over a year ago.

    I suppose no one else has had this happen?

    I'm doing a repair from the thumb drive. I'd think that will work. But still...why?

    End of the Story: the repair from the thumb drive worked.

    AND it resolved the earlier glitch I'd posted about. That is, my tool icons now have color back, and mouseover popup titles.

    In case you run into this, you may want to see what seems to have been the cause:

    I just had the same exact error. Windows Defender deleted the .exe for BibleWorks, as well as a registry entry. Are you saying it's best to think of this as a false positive?

    You didn't say what happened in your case, but in my case, a couple of purple notifications popped up in the lower-right-hand corner of the screen, upon booting the Windows 10 PC, to the effect that "Windows Defender has found malware," "Windows Defender is removing malware," etc. Did you get the same?

    Just as a follow-up, Windows Defender removed the same .exe and CLSIDs from the Registry as yours did.
