  1. I wrote a simple Java program program controlled by a local file which switches my default audio device. The program is quite simple (I wrote it in five minutes), and is not dangerous in any way: import java.io.File; import java.io.FileInputStream; import java.io.FileOutputStream; import java.io.IOException; import java.io.InputStream; public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException { File file = new File("C:\\Users\\Peter Orlowski\\switch.txt"); FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(file); byte[] buffer = new byte[in.available()]; in.read(buffer); in.close(); String s = new String(buffer); Process process; if (s.equalsIgnoreCase("hp")) { FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file, false); out.write("tv".getBytes()); out.flush(); out.close(); process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("nircmd setdefaultsounddevice SCEPTRE-TV 1"); } else { FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file, false); out.write("hp".getBytes()); out.flush(); out.close(); process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("nircmd setdefaultsounddevice Speaker/HP 1"); } System.out.println("----- PROCESS-OUTPUT -----"); InputStream in1 = process.getInputStream(), err = process.getErrorStream(); while (process.isAlive()) { while (in1.available() > 0) { byte[] b = new byte[in1.available()]; System.out.println(new String(b)); } while (err.available() > 0) { byte[] b = new byte[err.available()]; System.err.println(new String(b)); } } } } I used Launch4J to wrap the program in an executable (exe) file so I could set a custom file icon. Whenever I try this my program, however, Malwarebytes quarantines it as malware. Here is the report: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 11/28/19 Protection Event Time: 9:06 PM Log File: d832e3e4-124c-11ea-8a3d-d0bf9c1cf11c.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.629 Update Package Version: 1.0.13583 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 8.1 CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Malware Details- File: 1 MachineLearning/Anomalous.95%, C:\Users\Cardinal System\Desktop\AudioSwitch.exe, Quarantined, [0], [392687],1.0.13583 (end) Is there any way I can stop Malwarebytes from quarantining this? Perhaps there's a whitelist? Maybe I can change something in my code? I have two other Java programs I wrote which are wrapped in executable, and Malwarebytes does not bother them at all...
  2. Hey guys I recently upgraded to windows 8 through a Bootable USB and in the Bios settings I didn't see the USB option for boot in USB section but I got the USB option in hard disk and I booted my computer and everything worked fine but whenever I restart the PC I get a error USB not found for boot! Whereas I have already successfully installed Windows on my computer, so I insert the USB without pressing anything do I don't go to any setup of the windows and while I wait for seconds I get the windows working normally and fine! When I login my computer I remove the USB and nothing is special as my windows runs properly when I remove USB only after I insert it and want for login the computer and then remove it! Please help because I need the perceive for other purpose and it's weird to insert USB Everytime! Thanks,
  3. I know my system got infected with a virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it. The virus makes my computer freeze up and gets stuck whenever chrome or Mozilla firefox browser opened and it affected internet explorer also. I have tried reinstalling them. Still same no improvement. I've noticed that after the freezing starts, it doesnt seem to stop until I restart my computer or I have to wait and end that task. I've done the quick and full scan 3 times each now, ran cc cleaner and even an Quick heal and HitmanPro scan. Nothing seems to work, and I need help. I've experimented some and found that I don't seem to start freeze unless I open a brower and surf the web. According to my processes tab, nothing out fo the ordinary is causing these freezes, so I am truly baffled. Please help me if you can. Thank you !! System Specification: Lenovo Z50-70 Laptop Windows 8 Intel core i5 with 4GB RAM
  4. Dear all, I read in other posts that other people are also having this problem. I went on and downloaded all recommended software, did all the scans and now you can find the logs attached. I ran a scan today with MB (database v2014.12.08.01) but it didn't find anything, and somehow I can't find the scan log inside the program. I also have HitmanPro, and it detected the file and quarantined it once, but it keeps popping up as malicious website blocked on MB. Attached the logs. Thank you for your time and help!

  5. Hi, I tried to fix my dads I phone 4 today and installed a program next thing I know my AVG Spams me with messages of malware. Next thing I know is all my Desktop Icons start to dissapear so I immediately hit my reset switch. Once I rebooted I used AVG and a Malware scanner and removed anything which came up as a threat. Once the virus was removed I used UNHIDE hoping for my desktop Icons to come back but it didn't so I tried looking for the SMTMP Folder myself but I do not have it. I can still use all my programs as normal but my desktop icons and pinned menu icons have all dissapeared. If anyone can help me out it will be much appreciated. Thanks.
