We haven't had MWbytes long but our head admin is getting very concerned with the number of false positives we have been getting.

We are, the original issues occurred on 10/2-4/16, just created an account per mwbytes support. I guess my superior's biggest issue is that there has been an uptick in false positives lately and he's wondering how microsoft applications are getting flagged. :-( thank you Shadowwar for the info though.

Well Mbarw is behaviour based and still a beta. Fps unfortunately may occur with that. We aim to fix all though as quick as possible. We have a system in place to avert critical fps. Our next client version will have a bunch more safeguards in place.

The forum here though for the Main MBAM is the quickest way to get something fixed. We monitor this forum 24x7. They are usually fixed very quickly.
