False Positive(?): Microsoftedge.exe


Recommended Posts

Hello DGH51216 and :welcome:

MBARW Beta2 was deprecated since February 1st and all Beta testers are now asked to run Beta6.

Rather than a simple install of MBARW Beta6, please consider a clean install of MBARW Beta6:

1. Close all open user applications followed by a conventional Windows based uninstall of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware through the Windows system Control Panel.
2. If MBARW Beta2 was uninstalled successfully, the following sub-directories will have been deleted from a typical Windows 10 x86 system:

                         C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\
                         C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware\

3. If any of the above directories remain, please delete them manually.  If necessary, any remaining/uninstalled directory must be deleted in the Windows Safe mode.
4. Execute a conventional Windows restart to the Normal Windows boot mode and log-in through an Administrator's account. <===IMPORTANT!
5. Using an Administrator's account only, download a fresh MBARW_Setup.exe file and save to the Administrator's Desktop from the MBARW Introduction topic.
6. Right-click the saved MBARW_Setup.exe file and left-click RunAsAdmin.jpg  Run as administrator from the context menu and continue.
7. Upon a successful installation, please restart the computer in a conventional manner to the Windows Normal boot mode.

Please reply to your topic with the status of your reported issue. <=== IMPORTANT!

Please consider left-clicking the "Follow" button near the upper-right corner of this topic.  Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valued feedback.

I came to the forum looking for instructions about how to check if a quarantined item is a real threat or a false positive.

I have version (which I now understand is old).

What happens to files in quarantine when I uninstall this version and install the lastest version?
