  1. Thank you for that - I was guessing it could be a false positive be cause of the location. But I was not ruling out an attack to try and disable anti-virus software in general. I'm hoping that by having MalwareBytes and Windows Defender operating I'm more than adequately protected. For the record, I chose MalwareBytes over Bit Defender because when trying it out MalwareBytes seemed less intrusive for instalation, whereas Bit Defender wanted to change too many settings, and required logging in to operate, which for me has privacy issues. Thank you so much for your assistance.
  2. Update Somehow (I don't know what happened). The icon disappeared and using Taskbar setting I have it returned. So the problem is solved. I'm not sure what would have changed the setting.
  3. Windows Defender found a virus. Which it removed and recommended a reboot, which I did. On reboot Malwarebytes did not load. On trying to load the program manually it does not load. Looking at what the malware references according to Windows Defender it looks as though it has already done damage. So I ask these questions. 1. How can I get Malwarebytes to work again? 2. Why couldn't Malwarebytes erase the problem itself? The screenshot is from Windows Defender. Extra information on the Microsoft WD site does not seem to be helpful. Thank you.
  4. Thank you for all that. As mentioned in my first post, I successfully updated by a fresh installation. I'll let you know if there are problems when it updates in the future. Thank you for your swift responses. Have a great day.
  5. Thank you for the quick reply - It's in the zip file Capella 8.zip
  6. Please be informed that when Capella 8 (Music notation software) updates to the latest version from within the software it fails because MB quarantines the software as ransomware. The only way to upgrade to the latest version is to download the latest version and install from scratch, which MB allows. This is the software in question Capella Software I am reluctant to set this problem as allowed for this folder just in case it weakens protection.
