Windows 8.1 2 Detected FP - Deleted. Help

Recommended Posts



After windows 8.1 update and system update, I ran malwarebytes and there were two files detected:


C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-atl_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_3fc0044d754c0225\atl.dll (Trojan.FakeMS) -> No action taken.
C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-vcm-core-codecs_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_01428598f4095f36\iccvid.dll (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> No action taken.


Same exact situation and files as https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=139808

My database version was also the 2013 one


However, I assumed these were not false positive, and deleted them from the quarantine. 

As the above are false positives, I'm worried I have deleted essential running system files.

Would a system restore fix this, or is there any advise what to do?

This should have been fixed already.

Don't worry if you removed them from quarantine, the actual file that is needed/running is in your system32 folder. The WinSxS is mainly where backups are located and will be created again when the atl.dll and iccvid.dll gets updated.
