Avast cleanup tool causing an FP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

as of today I'm having a similar issue, but I haven't used Avast Cleanup in months... Didn't even know I have a valid license. 

Can you let me know, what I'm looking for in the registry to identify if it is the same thing? Unfortunately, I can't download the ZIP file posted in a previous comment.

     Regards, Danilo

Btw, this is what Malwarebytes shows in the log:

You will just have to set these to ignore. Let malwarebytes detect them. then uncheck each box next to the detection lines. Then hit cleanup. It will ask to ignore once or ignore always. Please select ignore always.

Malware does the same technique that avast uses so we really have to leave this detection in place for malware.
