ID'd old application as ransomware

Recommended Posts

After months of use with no problem, Malwarebytes anti-ransomware ID my genealogy application (TMG.exe) as ransomware.  I put TMG.exe in the exclusions, but there is still a copy in Quarantine.  When I click on RESTORE in Quarantine, I get a popup saying "Can't restore item marked for deletion on reboot."  I'm scared to turn my computer off lest Malwarebytes deletes one of my most important programs.  What to do????   Thanks.  Mike

Hello MichaelJFoxx and :welcome:

Please carefully read the locked and pinned topic in this sub-forum, How to report a False Positive and for developer analysis, kindly attach the 3 requested .zip archives to your next reply in this thread.

You may restart the system in question and the restore the application from quarantine.

If an exclusion has not already been entered, a temporary exclusion entry might then be made available to prevent a re-occurrence for your individual system.  Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your feedback.
