Rogue.Installer Found & Deleted - Wrong Thing to do?

Recommended Posts

My last scan found "Rogue.Installer" under C:\Program Files\setup.exe. I deleted this with MBAM. After some reading here, I'm wondering if I deleted something that I actually needed and if this was a False Positive? I wasn't aware that Malwarebytes had False Positives. Thanks for any help.

Hi Windey and welcome to malwarebytes'!

Yes mbam has false positives. Every product has them at one time or another.

  • ISSUE: I've ran a scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it says something is infected but I don't think it is
    SOLUTION: Before reporting a false positive, you need to save a log in developer mode. This will allow us to figure out how the false positive came to be. Simply follow these directions.
    • Click the Start Menu
    • Click Run (On Vista/Windows 7 you can type in the search line)
    • Type in "mbam.exe /developer", without the quotes
    • Run the same type of scan you did before and save the logfile and post it in a NEW post here
