I have been trying to install miners on my windows, but mostly detected as a threat by AVs. Why are most of the miners blocked by Antivirus programs? Is there any miner which has no problem with Antiviruses?

I don't know of any AV software that doesn't detect miners.

If you want to know what you can do so that AV software doesn't detect a miner, take a look at my answer here


Miners are usually flagged by anti-viruses as people create malicious software to mine Crypto-Currencies on the owners computer without their knowledge, and your average user is unlikely to be mining Crypto-Currencies so all miners are flagged. This doesn't usually affect serious miners as they don't install unneeded software and if using Windows have whether it be a registry edit or other method have disabled Windows defender.
