False positive?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I ran a MalwareBytes scan and it came back with a threat which I removed, now whenever my computer starts I get an error message saying that a dll cannot be found. I'm attaching screenshots of the MB quarantine log and error message that pops up when my computer starts. I don't know if running a scan would do anything as the threat has already been quarantined, do you want me to restore it and then run a scan to try and detect it again?

The file in question is C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\apcnap.dll

Thanks a bunch,

This doesn't appear to be a false positive though - so I don't recommend you restore it. Looks like there was a run key attached to it, hence why you get that error now.

I suggest you start a new thread in the malware removal forum, so someone else may help you to clean up the leftovers.
