This should be fixed now. Thanks for reporting.

Ok great.  When you say 'fixed', how do you mean?  Was it a safe file and just a scanning issue? Sorry, I don't know much about Viruses and the like.  And I want to be sure before I go on.

I did run the game yesterday for a while and Malwarebytes detected 4 MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%, all do do with the File and Process relating to HP.exe - is this worrying at all?

Showing still fixed on my end. Please do this.


Quit malwarebytes from the systemtray.
Then navigate to the following folder:


In there, locate the file HubbleCache and delete it.

Restart Malwarebytes again. A new Hubblecache will then be created again, so it will properly pick it up and remember to not detect this anymore.
