Recommended Posts

Hello, few minutes ago i got windows popup notification that i can change language with alt + shift, in that time i had only one language installed, after that i added eng language and i tried alt + shift to change language but it didnt worked so i opened win 10 notifications and clicked on that popup, malwarebytes instantly reported and blocked exploit from it. Is it false positive or do i have some **** in my newly installed windows 10 ? here is screen, log + mbst-grab-results

No, i have it disabled.

It a FP, Anti exploit has been a little aggressive with with system functions for a while now.

You wont have an issue when the trial is over and you go to free mode. Since you use ESET,  I assume you are planning to use Malwarebytes as a second opinion scanner.

Did you click apply?

yes i clicked apply. I fixed it another way, just changed combination in windows 10 settings for it. It seems like it was swapped with Ctrl + shift. Its weird, i never changed it.
well, when its false positive and all is working again(i hope) then its done i think.  I was ready to reinstall win10 again :D
Thank you for your time and help.
