Hi caretech.

Thanks for your report. This file should no longer be detected. If you've added notepad++.exe to the exclusions in Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware BETA, please do remove from exclusions and let us know if the issue returns. It should not.


Thank you for your participation!

Hi caretech. No updates to the program will be required for this particular false positive resolution. That being said, we will be releasing a new Beta version soon, which among other things, will reduce this type of false positive.

As for the unprotected state, please try toggling protection off,  restarting the system, and re-enabling the protection. Does that resolve the issue?
