ICQ/No file transfer in ICQ 8 with Windows Defender


Did a new rebuild of Win 7. Using Windows Defender. Unable to transfer or receive files in ICQ 8

Hello Mike!

Thanks for your question!

Can you confirm it's related with Windows Defender? Do you still have the problem when you disable Windows Defender?

If this fixes the problem, then I ssuggest stop using this app as it's not really securing so much anyway. better use spybot instead.

Hope this helps!
All the best!

I can answer all questions regarding ICQ except those like: "I have lost my password, how do I get it back?" because I am not an ICQ Team member, so I cannot do anything about lost passwords.


I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using ICQ since ICQ2000b, but of course I know the current ICQ client the best. I also used the alpha ComPad ICQ client.
