I have just done .a scan with Malwarebytes and 278 non-malware items were detected. All are PUP.Optional.FreeFileViewer.A. I have been using FreeFileViewer  and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for years without problems. Have Malwarebytes just now decided that there is a problem with FreeFileViewer or is this a false positive?

Hello and welcome:
False Positives are reported in a different forum area, for prompt attention by the Research Team. :)

Thank you,

How to get scan logs:
(Export log to save as a txt file for posting in the forum when requested)

  • Open MBAM.
  • Click on the HISTORY tab > APPLICATION LOGS.
  • Double-click on the SCAN LOG which shows the date and time of the scan just performed (or the one you are asked to post).
  • Click EXPORT.
  • Click TEXT FILE (*.txt)
  • In the "Save File" dialog box which appears, click on DESKTOP.
  • In the FILE NAME box, type a name for your scan log.
  • A message box named "File Saved" should appear, stating that "Your file has been successfully exported".
  • Click OK.
  • Attach the saved log to your next reply.
