Hi, I've been using MalwareBytes Free on my computer for a number of years, never had a problem and only use it for the bare basics - only 'safe' websites (Wikipedia, Facebook) and don't use it a great deal anyway. Did a scan this morning and it detected "MachineLearning/100%anomalous detection" - interestingly I had run a scan earlier without the internet connected, but after I connected the internet and ran the scan again it found it. I've since quarantined and deleted the file, ran another scan and all seems well - I'd just like to know what it was and whether it was a real problem or a false positive. I did a large Windows update (1803) last night and wonder if that's related? I have looked over this forum and seen that this detection has come up a number of times for people developing their own software, however I am not a software developer and had nothing on my computer that an average user wouldn't have. I understand that MalwareBytes is using new detection systems to stop malware, and so hopefully this is a teething problem rather than a real concern. I'm pretty savvy about computer safety, but still I'd rather be certain that everything is OK. I'm attaching the exported report here. There are no other visible signs of infection (slowing down, redirects etc). Thank you! MB Report.txt
