An App recently made with AutoHotkey, detected as virus (False positive).

Recommended Posts

I wish to submit an own application made, it is based on AutoHotkey scripting language, and meant to be working on Windows systems.

I added a description to each file used by this application, it is found at this link:
Program files description


Source code of Launcher.exe it is in here:


Source code of main.exe:


Other executable are unknown code sources for me, but they are fine as I see, I worked with them for a while and I never encountered a problem with them, the rest are just bunch of known files, no harm in them I think.

The compiler I used is the integrated one with the installation of AutoHotkey called Ahk2Exe, plus an UPX compression method just for main.exe.
You can also check it here:


I really wish to know if there is any problem with any file, so I can fix, in the goal to let people trust this app.
Waiting for your respond, and thank you for your services

Hello @Smile_

Let me get some logs and I'll see what I can find. I will go ahead and move your topic over to the Malware Removal forum where we can work together on this.


To begin, please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your installation for troubleshooting:

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained are safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  • In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file
  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine
  • A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your desktop, please upload that file on your next reply

Thank you

Thank you. There are a few issues. The following fix should remove those issues as well as check and verify system file integrity


Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Please make sure you disable any real time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed make sure you re-enable it.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

Well done, @AdvancedSetup, everytihng went smoothly and now Malwarebytes is working without any issue, and this is Fixlog.txt  Fixlog.txt you asked me to post.

May I ask you something? (If I'm not allowed to know, I understand no problem!)

About the fixlist.txt that you sent me, I see it containing some commands to be executed (removing or modifying some settings on my computer...etc), may I able to know how it is generated? depending on the grabbed results (mbst-grab-results.zip), so for example if Ii have to run a scan to create a log result for another computer, I have to contact you to send me the fixlist.txt? or i can do it myself?

The Farbar program generates the list. Then me or you or someone else you trust creates a FIXLIST which FRST then reads and acts upon.

How to use the program is available to the public but be very careful. The program does not ask any questions and if you tell it to do something dangerous it just may well do it.

Make sure you fully understand what it is you're asking the program to do.
