Defender does not like 4.5 either. Tried 32 and 64 bit, neither will run. Standing with 4.3 64-bit.

@PAFuser - I'd recommend running it past VirusTotal rather than relying on Defender. It's very likely a false positive.

Finally, v. 4.8 can be installed on Windows without being aborted by Defender and it is no longer flagged by VirusTotalcom engines. The last two versions had been unusable for those reasons.

Optical Info v1.04

webfork on 15 Oct 2017

Optical Info detects and displays the read/write capabilities of any CD/DVD drive. This is useful because such drives don't often display their capabilities in the front panel, or the information may be blocked by the PC casing. The utility allows you to select a CD/DVD drive by drive letter for analysis.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch optinfo.exe.

I prefer "Nero Info Tool" instead because it displays more precise information about read/write modi of your cd/dvd burner, e.g. TAO/SAO/DAO etc. Along this you have some other useful information about drivers/ASPI/ide controllers etc.
