False Positive for Notepad.exe


Recommended Posts

Uhmm.... When i do scans i always update it to latest definitions... My definition is 5470... When i tried running quick scan it says that notepad.exe is infected with trojan fakems... of course i was shocked because i know it is legitimate... But I trust Malwarebytes... I tried quarantining it and poof... system file checker pops up I restarted the computer and tried restoring the files... That means it might be a false positive

Heres the log file...

Do you have a custom theme or skin installed? I have never seen this version of notepad with this icon.

Anyways we have fixed this in the current Database.

thanks for fixing that... i got nervous when sys file checker suddenly pops up and by the way i use vista inspirat :blink:
