FPB.TMP in temp folder
« on: May 17, 2012, 03:45:08 AM »
I searched the data base and can not find anything on this? I scanned with avast several times and it says it can not scan it? I search the internet and it says it is a adobe file, even though I cleaned my temp folders out, it still findsit.
I tried to email support, and for some reason I can not log into avast support though everything is ok,
any help would be appreciated.

I will post here since I am having the same problem.  Avast keeps finding a file in my app data temp files that is fpb.tmp.  The scan reslut says "status: Error. System cannot find path specified". While I can choose an action, I am unable to highlight, by clicking the file name, or "apply" any actions. 

I keep avast up to date, have run multiple full scans, ran malwarebytes, window's defender with no success. I am at a loss as to what is wrong.

The file is not malware...its just a error saying that the file is in a path that is not existing...so the file is not on your computer  :)
