HitmanPro alerts "Windows.Internal.Management.SecureAssessment.dll"

Recommended Posts

Hi, I did a scan with HitmanPro and it reports "Windows.Internal.Management.SecureAssessment.dll" as suspicious. Isn't that a critical system file? Maybe the location path is not the usual therefore suspicious? What is this and what should I do with this file: ignore, quarantaine or remove? Thanks in advance for all help.

Here's the report on that file:

I too just ran Hitman Pro Alert and got the same. It indicated suspicious , but a trace. I ran Malabytes and  it came up negative, Notron was run and it  was a negative.So is it safe to  conclude that this is a false detection. Mucho grateful for any  insights



@Zesuses Is a Windows Update in process (KB4483234)? When you want to restart your PC, can you only do "restart and update" or did you already complete the update and does HitmanPro still show the message when you run a scan with it? Let me know here. Thanks.

Zeuses you are not authorized to reply to someone else topic.

Your advice may be good but will not stop the false positive from Hitman Pro.



To be sure the file should be sent to Hitman Pro so that they can update their program.

It's he only way you can find out if the file was corrupted or not.

No , I already  had previously updated. Im not dispensing advice, Im just trying to establish whether or not the file detection in question is  an actual threat or just a  false positive.

Warm Regards,


Zeuses, could you also make a scan log and send it to support@hitmanpro, give them some info on what happened. 

Make sure to also ask them for a reply asap and if you get a reply post it here. Could you do that? Would help alot. Thanks.
