Minecraft False Positive

Recommended Posts


I ran a manual scan of my file system earlier today and there were 10 detections in my C:/Users/[name]/appdata/roaming/.minecraft/bin directory.

I don't really know what these files are, but all of them were created at least a year ago, so I doubt they are malicious. The detected files are all LWJGL_OPENGL32.DLL. I have seen other posts that have this false positive, but all of them say that it should no longer be detected.

Is there any way to remedy this?

Malwarebytes has stopped detecting it for some reason.

This was happening after I installed a game from Steam which was also giving me a false positive. After uninstalling the Steam game, Malwarebytes is no longer detecting these Minecraft files as malware.
