Windows 8 Release preview

Recommended Posts

I realize Malwarebytes isn't optimized for windows 8 but I had been running it on the Consumer Preview with no issues. I installed the recent Release Preview got a couple of detections for Trojan.FakeAlert and was wondering if these are false positives.

The first time I ran Malwarebytes was after I had installed Win8 RP and installed all my programs and I got the 2 detections. I decided to wipe the hard drive and start over and ran Malwarebytes first thing after I got a network connection and got the same 2 detections.

I've also run Windows Defender,Spybot Search & Destroy and TDSS Killer and got 0 detections.

Thanks in advance.

We haven't tested yet with Windows 8. Can you do me a favor and export this registry in windows 8 so we can see what is going on?

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\CSCRIPT.EXE

Do I just attach like the previous log? Is there anything sensitive in the file?

Thanks for reporting - This will be fixed in next update :)

So is this a false positive? Do you still need that regisrty file mentioned above?
