Koonta, thank you very much for handling that and making sure they fixed their false positive  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
Much appreciated.

Dealing with false positives is sooo frustrating and it happens quite a bit to us, so any help in getting it taken care of is really appreciated.  :up: :up: :up:

My Pleasure Mouser,


                           I'm a computer admin myself, in the network side off things --> cisco --> so i deal with similar problems myself so i thought i would do you guys a good turn, i have been using screenshotcaptor for yrs and a did receive a lifetime license from you guys a while back so 1 good turn deserves another!!
                                                                      Cheers Mouser, PS if you have any networking issues im the man to ask!!  :Thmbsup:  :Thmbsup:

Interesting that after seeing it was a false positive the admin still said it was "accurate". How can a false positive be accurate?

Malwarebytes is great, but has been flagging a lot of stuff as positive on my system, although none of them are positives.   Seems to be getting worse.

how do the anti-virus companies decide that something could be a positive infection? seems like they just copy each other definitions without any thought of whether it's accurate or not - otherwise how come we have so many completely wrong results.
