False Positive generic malware

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes decided  to flag my PDF writer as generic malware. How doi I get it to not flag it and not quarantine it?

How should I continue to use the Cute PDF writer???

Hello,

We need a copy of the file in question please if possible. Zip and attach in your next reply if you can please. You can also provide a scan results link from virustotal.
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/upload
Upload file there & once scan is complete, post the resulting link back here.

Thanks!

This file was downloaded from Ninite.com . It has been on my computer for years and only this week  did it come up in  a scan for the first time.

Can you please post the detection log? I am unable to duplicate a detection on this end.

I quarantined the malware,  removed Cute PDF writer software, re-downloaded Cute PDF writer from Ninite.com and ran another scan and included the report for you here.  I hope this helps.
