false positive?


Recommended Posts

guess this is a false positive rogue "safe fighter" trojan, identified by heuristic analysis at the end of scan, apparently related to the program " http://www.newsoftwares.net/folderlock/  .
no false "safe fighter" alerts, and tried to locate it in the registry through scan but to no avail.  if I uninstall "folder lock"  the scan no longer identifies the rogues.

Here the log:

There's some incompatibility issue with Folderlock and malwarebytes causing "ghost detections".

That's why I recommend to exclude the directories you've put "folder lock" on from Malwarebytes scan. After all, since you've put a lock on these, malware won't be able to get in there either since you've locked access for these.

Tks for the prompt reply.  Actually fool I am I had been duped by the log giving the ' c:\users\[..]\desktop\ ' path, and looked all over to find the Folderlock directory to scan and if positive exclude - except for the obvious place under 'c\program files....'. Now the exclusion works. Cheers.
