Re: Repeated Trojan Attempts tonight

I also replied and it hasn’t come through yet - likely to be held if it had the image in it.

I’m not convinced it’s genuine, although SearchApp.exe is part of Windows, the one mentioned looked to have a suspicious path.

I already replied to this but my message doesn’t seem to have come through. The problem is mentioned on the Malwarebytes forum as a ‘'false positive” & should be fixed by updating your Malwarebytes.

As you can see easily from your screen shot the program causing the problem is nothing to do with Family Historian and looks to be a Trojan located in your Windows folder.  Clicking on the blue link for Trojan should give you advice on what to do.

I recommend ensuring your Antivirus is fully upto date and do a full scan of your PC and if you still don't find the culprit contact the Malware Bytes support.
