False Positives - DAO file


Recommended Posts


today I have load this Beta vor testing. Now I have a false Report ( see Screen). TUnfortunately, the message output has been incomprehensible to me. I have long been looking for this DAO Dings. I found problems with Windows, the store no longer opened, and the icon was gone, I was then able to find what was APP mistaken for ransomware.
I have made from the Quarantine, but add the app as harmless arises as very problematic because there are six folders with various subfolders that belong to the Windows Store app. A systematic search for the file in question did not bring any hits, even when modifying the name of leave.

After restarting the Store is back in its original place. For desired analysis I send you the secured Quarantinefile.
I'm new here and I hope it's good enough

Hi chaosomi. 

Thanks for your report. This file should no longer be detected. If you've added DAO.20852700.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.

Please note. We typically would like all the following information when reporting a false positive:

But, that Quarantine folder was helpful also.

Thank you for your participation!

sigh, what have I done.  Here is a File that  found on desktop, is terminated to yasterday after false positv+reboot


Have tried and recognized the cause of the empty log file, probably because he has thrown on the desktop, instead of writing manual safety. Because Windows does not release the log file, (Anti-Ransomwa but I had previously completely disabled, so that writing works ...) I have now produced a manually copy from folder Logs (C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\logs)
Hope that the new findings contribute to the improvement.
And thanks for protection and assistance

Best regards from Germany

The graphics card is Nvidia, but I do not use any special add-ons or extras that would make it plausible why it was striking. I have therefore once checked the services that run with respect to NVidia. Today after the restart but a tool has been terminated because it allegedly no longer works. Dexpot - It creates virtual desktops, I think it was an older version that is slimmer than the latest. There was no specific message. I have installed the latest version of Dexpot about. And it all boils as always.

Check also the update history. No driver updates, Windows10 last update was 2016-06-10

tja I believe there with me every now and then new input * gg *

again there is a file in the folder NVidia and I nichtsauf the PC made, for which I would have Nvidia specifically required. Seems that maybe, maybe I should somehow call in the system log?

  • 2 weeks later...

after a few days really were now no real problems, I found this morning a new false positive. Widerum was pushed a file from Nvidia in the quarantine, and my computer almost it has this time swallowed the reboot. He needed to load much longer to Windows.

(in use Firefox was surfbar with one that sometimes is even videos or animated images. Can it be that this access Nvidia processes that then cause the false alarm?)
If your detail checked the log, I must confess, I had last week except for a very old program (image processing) that I use under Windows10 that has been recognized by many antivirus already wrong as malware because of the "crack". The program at that time was legally purchased, and the crack is not a threat. I have taken the tool to the exceptions and not reported because there is no standard software in modern applications, it would be a waste of time to deal with it, but I want it explain if the log file raises questions
