A-Squared in the past has always had way too many false positives for my tastes, but free is free. I signed up for a free 1-year license.

MAYBE false positives are part of the price for the high detection rank?
(if it can be trusted)

This new version 4.5 seems okay.
It does not auto check everything on a scan, only high risk.
So looking at the hits is essential.

It also has active watch enabled.
If anything fires up as you are using the computer.

It's claiming better results then Malwarebytes.
But that would include false positives I'm sure.
As Curt pointed out.

Note, it flagged filedraft.exe as high risk and auto checked it.
filedraft.exe is not a risk.

Filedraft works quite well in fact.
Once it's configured correctly.
