NoDouble a ransomware ? True or False Positive ?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, :)

Yesterday, I launched my NoDouble software to find doubles in my PC. After the scan, Malwarebytes has detected it as a ransomware and put it in quanrantine.:blink:

I actually have to say that that edition of NoDouble is a Premium one (I've paid for it, I've got the licence), same thing for Malwarebytes. :wub:

I am a bit worry. Is it true NoDouble is a ransomware or is it a False Positive ? :blink::wacko:

I have looked for answers on the web, but nobody ever talked about NoDouble as a ransomware. :blush:

Have you experienced the same problem than I ? Do you know if NoDouble is really what Malwarebytes tells it is ? :huh:

Thank you for your answers. ;)

Hello thisisu ! :)


Ummm I am sorry but I am not sure to understand what you ask me to do... :blush:

Do you want me to attach my software NoDouble and the file MBAMservices.LOG in my next post ??


I've got a big problem... I looked for it everywhere in my PC a few minutes ago, I am completely unable to find nodouble.exe ! I don't know where it is ! It scares me a little.


In D:\ Program Files (x86), I cannot find the file NoDouble.exe at all ! I find the file NODouble Aide.chm, NoDouble Help.chm, NoDouble.ENG but no trace of the NoDouble.exe

Here is the other file you've asked me to attach ; MBAMservices.LOG

No worries. It was a false positive. I've whitelisted the file so it shouldn't be detected anymore. The file appears to be in quarantine. To restore it, open Malwarebytes, go to "Quarantine", and find the entry with Location: D:\Program Files (x86)\NODouble.exe. Place a check mark in that entry by left mouse clicking in the empty box, and press "Restore". The file should be restored to its original location.

Hello thisisu ;)

Actually I do not find the file even in Malwarebytes quarantine.


The last event there is from June 7th, 2017. Malwarebytes detected NoDouble as a ransomware a few days ago, on August 6th, 2017.

Malwarebytes mention that file has been blocked and quarantined in Reports, but I never could find that mention in Quarantine.

H Abilou,

It might be fastest to reinstall the program as I can only go by what the log tells us, which is that the file was quarantined.

Feel free to try the following search as well:

Download and run SystemLook

In the white box / text-field, type in the following two lines:


Then press the "Look" button at the bottom. Wait while it searches your system. Attach or paste the contents of  SystemLook.txt when finished.

Thank you very much, thisisu ;)

I've decided to re-download NoDouble.

I am lauching a new NoDouble scan right now, but I've unchecked "Automatically quarantine detected items" before doing it. I hope it will works that way. 
I'll check that parameter again after having delete the doubles.

Thank you again, thisisu, for your help :)

It does NOT worked !

Malwarebytes absolutely DOES NOT WANT to stop to block my NoDouble software while I am trying to delete the doubles on my PC !

That begins to make me really angry ! I've got many many doubles ! It takes a long time to do that scan to look for the doubles on my PC !

The thing I will do now, once for all, is to DELETE Malwarebytes, to run my NoDouble software, to delete the doubles and then, ONLY AFTER, to (maybe) reinstall Malwarebytes !

So thank to Malwarebytes to all those complications !

Malwarebytes is supposed to act against malwares, not to act like a malware.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I whitelisted the file that was quarantined according to the log. I'm not sure why it's continuing to detect as ransomware. If you want, you can try adding a file exclusion as well.

The steps for adding an exclusion in Malwarebytes are:

Settings ==> Exclusions ==> Add Exclusion ==> Exclude a File or Folder ==> Select Files... ==> Navigate to D:\Program Files (x86)\NODouble.exe ==> Select it and press OK.

Again, sorry for your troubles. 

Best regards
