This problem is caused by a false positive of your antivirus software.

You can confirm it is a false positive with an online scanner, such as VirusTotal if you wish.

To fix this, you’ll need to either disable or uninstall your antivirus software. Make sure to reboot if you choose to uninstall it.


  1. Close all instances of yuzu and any installer processes you may have running.
  2. Press Win+R, in the opened window type %localappdata% and press Enter.
  3. Select the yuzu folder and delete it. If it is being used by another process, please double check that you do not have any yuzu related applications running.
  4. Launch the installer and install yuzu again.
