ReiGuard.exe- not detected by malwarebytes_please fix.

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes can't "fix" a detection.  Someone or you has to submit samples of the installer so Malwarebytes can make a judgement on the software and create signatures if the software fits their criteria for a PUP or as a PUP.Optional detection.
{ NOTE:  PUP and PUP.Optional detections are not malware detections }
Submissions for that kind of software is made in;  Newest Malware Threats  after one reads and follows the following references on how to provide sample submissions such that Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) can detect targeted but presently undetected threats.

Just realize that if the subject matter is not easily found, somebody has to provide a sample of the installer.


Malwarebytes can not create signatures without a complete evaluation of the software.  Especially in the case of Potentially Unwanted Programs ( PUPs ) as there is a set of criteria that must be met before it can be detected.

In addition to @DHL's expert advice...

Spyhunter 4 is a possible scareware/rogue, or at least has some undesirable aspects (and here).
So, it's not entirely clear if the detections you show in the screen shot are real.

Without a sample, it's hard to say for sure.
Under the circumstances, the best bet might be to have one of the malware experts assist you with checking and cleaning the system.

To do that, I suggest that you might want to please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the suggested, preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue - the helper will guide you through scanning, cleanup and repair.

(The helper can also review your scan logs and send them along to the MBAM researchers, if there's evidence of as-yet-undetected malware on your system.)

Thanks, but this is @iDash's thread.

As @David H. Lipman pointed out, the MBAM Researchers cannot create signatures for the malware database based on snippets of screen shots from another program (especially if that other program may not be a credible anti-malware application).


Thanks to you both,

No mbae, you are mistaken.
The Free version is reactive software.  That means you have to perform an "On Demand" scan for detection.
The Paid-For Pro version is proactive software.  That means it performs "On Demand" and "On Access" thus it protects.
The same signatures are used in the Free and Paid-For Pro version.
False Positives are a completely different matter and since this is iDash's thread, which is about detection, it isn't a part of this subject matter and thus I won't entertain that "here".
