i deleted it and restarted yet when i search the location i still see it there (note in the result above it said no action taken but the log was created  before i removed it, which required a restart)

Can you please rescan and check again?


Extension.Mismatch is a generic def that detects executable files with a .log extension when executable should be .exe


The file u uploaded is not executable so it shouldnt of been detected.


A quick scan should be all that is needed to check this.




avast detecting malwarebytes as malware again lol 

did the quick scan and found nothing
