for what it's worth, I just
downloaded the 64 bit version of the new general release;
installed the above;
did not even get a 'malware' alert this time :))
started it up;
everything opens and runs just like it should.
Running it with WSJT-X v2.4.0 (did not install for JTDX)
Windows 10 pro
Not a glitch to be seen ...
[I better shut up before the pc gremlins hear me!]
