Spyware.Passwords.XGen Is my PC now safe?


Recommended Posts

Hi only second post so not sure if im in the right section

Yesterday I updated malwarebytes and it prompted me to reinstall the latest version I ran a scan and it found this

Memory Processes Infected: 0

Memory Modules Infected: 0

Registry Keys Infected: 0

Registry Values Infected: 0

Registry Data Items Infected: 0

Folders Infected: 0

Files Infected: 1

Memory Processes Infected:

Registry Keys Infected:

Registry Values Infected:

Registry Data Items Infected:

Folders Infected:

(No malicious items detected)

Files Infected:

c:\program files\learning essentials\1.0\en\GB\periodic table.exe (Spyware.Passwords.XGen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

After some issues with saving the logs i deleted it (it only gave me the choice to ignore or delete I could not keep it in quarantine)

I ran another malwarebytes scan that found nothing, Mcafee did not detect anything (and let it through) and i scaned with microsoft safety scanner which found nothing.

What I would like to know is my PC safe now or was it a false positive.

Putting 'Spyware.Passwords.XGen' in google does nt come up with much but what i did find is quite scary.

Hope this makes sense, Thanks in advance for reading and any help offered.

also apart from finding that there was no obvious new issues with my pc

Please read this and upload the file here, along with the log. Thanks.

Hi, Sorry I deleted it as the only options where delete or ignore,

It would nt save a log and i could nt click on any thing else, if i pressed ignore i could go to the other sections so i rescanned that file and again i only had those two choices

Once i deleted it the log saved and it seems fine now (it is now saving logs)

so what I mean is shall i still do the scan? even though i told malwarebytes to delete the file (quarantine is empty)

After contacting the FAB email support, they say it looks to be a false positive.

so i dont know if someone wants to close this thread now.

P.S can i say thanks to everyone who has offered me advice( now and in the past) and to everyone who works so hard making this site so helpful you've saved me many a sleepless night.
