Scan told me a file was infected but...

Recommended Posts


The scan reported that one file was infected and listed it for removal. I hit the remove button without having first selected the file. (I didn't click the box next to the listed file before hitting the remove button.)

Then I got a message that said that all selected files had been removed, but gave me no further option toward the infected file.

Ran the scan again and this time it did not catch the infected file.

Did it assume I wanted it to ignore that file?

How can I find and remove the infected file at this point?

Any assistance would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Perhaps this is a question for Malwarebytes (?)

If Malwarebytes has flagged the infected file that it should be ignored.

If I remove Malwarebytes and then re-download it, will it catch the file then?
