Possible false positive trojan.meterpreter


Recommended Posts

Thank you for checking this. 

When I try to restore the file from quarantine, I get an error "Unable to restore...  Access is Denied".  Where is the file located?  I can manually move it if I know where it is.  I tried running Malwarebytes as administrator, but I still got the same message.

Thank you @lhenry74

Please create a NEW System Restore Point before anything else.

Create System Restore Point in Windows 11

Then Use System Restore on Windows 11 to recover to this previously saved Restore Point: 02-08-2022 22:49:38 Windows Modules Installer

Thanks for the help!  I haven't actually noticed anything that isn't working, so I will wait until an app does not work and fix it then.  I reset several apps, but I don't know which one needs the file that is missing.  It seems like this solution will work.
