file in Jaws screen reader


Recommended Posts

There appears to be a false positive in the file wm_hooks64.dll used by the Jaws screen reader. On totalvirus, malwarebytes is the only one that thinks there is a virus.

It's my understanding that Malwarebytes is used by quite a few users of Jaws.

It would clearly be a problem to them if this stopped their screen reader working.

attached is the first file in the log. (since the first scan, I copied to to the Download/temp folder, that why it's showing up there.
