Hi,

Do you have "Use expert system algorithms to identify malicious files" enabled? It is located in Settings > Security> Scan option.

This is normally disabled by default.

In either way, Staff will look into this and get this fixed.

Thanks for reporting!

FYI. This setting is in the experimental stage.

That setting is to detect malformed files but sometimes legit files use protection that make them malformed. Malwarebytes is still tweaking the algorithms that is why it’s off by default. If you switch it on it is assumed, you are able to tell the difference between a FP and a legit detection. 

And if you keep it on, I suggest also turn off auto quarantine. Gives you the time to report FP's and not go thru the extra step to have to restore from quarantine.

I do have it enabled and generally I know false from real but I also thought I should report it so that it could be checked into and added to a whitelist I assume MBAM uses and pushed with it's incremental updates.

Thank you for the quick reply.

That is appreciated. It helps fine tune this feature.

Many users have turned this on and it can cause lots of worry for users thinking their computer is infected.

Thanks again... though it's been almost a decade since I "officially" was in the IT field I still help a few people and business and try to submit issue, fps, and such.
