Hard Configurator: Likely false positive, please investigate.

Recommended Posts

Hello! First off, I'd like to state that this is the first complete Filesystem scan I have run on my computer since I upgraded to a Solid State Drive. Man, that went by fast.

There's an administrative/security utility I downloaded a while back called Hard Configurator. Today, Malwarebytes identified it as a threat when I did a Filesystem scan. While I do trust the software to a reasonable extent and am sure that it's a false positive, I would still like an investigation and second opinion of the software. Here's the scan log.

Official website of the software:


Github repository:


Website where I first found it:


Do let me know what turns up during the investigation. If I'm right, it should be safe, but until that's proven I'll keep it quarantined.

Can you attach the file we are detecting for review please?

The password will be in a private message. I tried zipping up the entire directory so it would be easier to analyaze, but 7-Zip gave me an out-of-memory error >.<
As soon as I can figure out what's causing the issue, I'll attach the whole directory.

This should be fixed by now. Please give it some time (max 10 minutes) in order to have it populate, so detection won't happen anymore.

If still detected on your end after ~10 minutes from now. Perform the following steps: 

  1. Totally exit/shutdown Malwarebytes.
  2. Go to here in explorer: C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
  3. Delete the following file only: hubblecache
  4. Then you can restart MBAM and the cache file will rebuild on the next scan.
