Anti-Virus and AntiMalware

It is not always necessary, but we recommend whitelisting the helpdeskbuttons installation folder (C:\Program Files(x86)\Helpdesk Button). We regularly submit our code through VirusTotal to make sure we are not getting flagged, but almost all AV/M interactions cause some sort of failure. Webroot in particular can cause issues with screenshots.
