JRT and Xmarks


Recommended Posts

Today, after running JRT 8.0.6 I had to reinstall Xmarks in Firefox. Not an IT type so I don't know if this was a chance issue or caused by running JRT. Below is the JRT report:

Latest version took care of the Xmarks issue. The scan report is below. Is there any way to tell what the two files are? Does JRT put these files in a specific location, or are they just deleted (did not show up in Trash after scan).

Those files are related to BitDefender and therefore aren't malicious. I suspect they contain information about previous or current BitDefender product and/or definition updates. JRT removes them to tidy up as they aren't required to run BitDefender and somewhat slow down diagnostic log analysis. They aren't put in any type of quarantine folder or Recycle Bin. They are gone. If you did want to restore something JRT deleted, use the System Restore point that JRT created prior to it starting any scans.
