The issue is there was an update to Test. Windows and defender were not updated on any of my Win 10 systems. eqgame.exe is now being flagged as Trojan/32 and the updated exe is not DL'd. this is presumably for and update to be pushed to Live. The "its MS's fault or Defenders's fault..." is a moot point. the update as it stands will cause Live to become unplayable. I believe the bulk of frustration being voiced is due to lack of acknowledgement that there is an issue. BTW you can simply add eqgame.exe to Windows Defenders exclusion list, and run launchpad, the updated exe will finish and you can log in, I just tested this on my laptop prior to this post. the file is being flagged a false positive, MalwareBytes cleared the file, and my MD5 matches.
