Microsoft OfficeClicktoRun.exe False Positive


Recommended Posts

Microsoft Office's ClickToRun.exe was flagged sometime around June 21st at 3am

Again, MAR says it's quarantined, but it doesn't show up in quarantine and I am unable to restore these legitimate files.

It's deleted everything from the following directory:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun\Updates

I'm going to stop beta testing. This program is doing more damage than protection. If you can tell me how to restore these files, I might reconsider.

Thanks and good luck.

Hello GeekFreak:

Available data strongly suggests a false positive, and if it has not already been done, you may wish to make the following temporary full pathname file entry in MBARW GUI Dashboard -> Exclusions:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun\Updates\16.0.6965.2058\OfficeClickToRun.exe

Reference: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/4acc419736027184278915345bf10cbaafb93b6f50a789cbc675fa126dafc1a6/analysis/ Signed

At any time, a MBARW development team member, QA team member or Staffer may request the above temporary exclusion be altered/deleted.

Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valuable feedback.
