Thanks to malwarebytesūüėĖ I have lost access to one of the best computer financial farm programs and 20¬† years of data. Your program ūüė¨corrupted my license files when they were quarantined by malwarebytes. Unfortunately Agdata doesn't have any fix for the .plf files¬† The only fix would be to replace them and unfortunately this cannot be done due to this version being unsupported and the activation software has been decommissioned.

This from Agdata -  "Norton and MalwareBytes have created these issues for quite a number of clients. Unfortunately as they are other programs which AGDATA and Phoenix have no control over we cannot stop them from creating these types of issues. The directors here have emailed these products to try and stop this from happening in the future, however we have had no response from them to date."

Thanks for providing the file.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience that's been caused. The detections were indeed a false-positive that we've since removed from the database.

Unfortunately, there are no items currently in the Malwarebytes Quarantine. This is due to the machine being restored to a previous point using System Restore. When dealing with a false-positive, the best way of proceeding is to access the Malwarebytes Quarantine and restore the quarantined items directly using Malwarebytes.

Just to confirm there are no other factors involved, you may want to try booting the machine into Safe Mode with Networking and checking if you still encounter the same issue. Aside from that, I'm afraid there's not much else we can do to assist with this issue.
