Ransomware csrss.exe false positive


Recommended Posts

Apologies for creating yet another post on this but all the ones I've read through don't seem to have resolved the problem.

Malwarebytes 3.0.5 is frequently detecting c:\windows\system32\csrss.exe as ransomware.

I know this file can potentially be infected but I can assure you that this is not the case.

I'm running the latest version of Windows 10, it is a clean build, and the laptop is barely used as my main laptop runs Linux.

I've also noticed that Malwarebytes 3.0.5 premium gets reverted back to Malware 3.0 basic and I have to reinsert my licence key and redownload updates.  I'm unsure if this occurs at the same time as the false positive detection but it always happens close to it. 

I can't exclude csrss.exe from being scanned by ransomware as Malwarebytes doesn't even see the file.


I don't have Java installed on this laptop (I read that as a potential solution in another recent post)


Hope this can get sorted soon.


Best Regards
