I have just started mining and I found that every miner that I download is not running, blocked by chrome, or blocked by antivirus. Right now I'm using minergate and I don't like it. I want some mining software. Please don't tell the ones on Linux because my cpu (ryzen) isn't supported by Linux, any Linux. I don't care if it is cli or gui. Thanks.

Many are getting falsely flagged by antiviruses because the code from them has been copied over to some worms which also mine Monero on infected machines.

There's a nice list and guide here


You can use any miner which supports cryptonight algorithm. ccminer, cpuminer comes to mind, both supports cryptonight. Minergate's miner is actually a moded cgminer, and their blog is actually quite helpful, but there are suspicions that their software is skimming hash rates, I personally don't use any closed source miners. The ultimate solution would be running Linux, just wait a couple of months till the proper firmware from AMD and new kernels get released then you can try again.
