Hi,

I can't reproduce detection on the file. Are you sure this is the same file in Virustotal that is on your system?

Can you rescan again and see if the file is still being detected? If so, then please post the detection log so we can verify this is indeed the exact same file.

Thanks!

It is the same VirusTotal file. image.thumb.png.83e37eaefeb373f6cf5815169760c306.png

I had done the rescan. There wasn't any more detections even though I didn't quarantine or delete the original file.

Here is the old log file:
