Files unable to exist after deleting with virus chest.
« on: January 25, 2018, 01:45:59 AM »
Hello, I had some files that ended up being detected and put into the virus chest. I thought it was a false positive but decided to delete them anyway and just reinstall incase they had somehow became infected. Now the file can not exist in the same folder. If i try to copy it from a different location to the folder I get this ( https://i.imgur.com/W2kYLmh.png ). If I rename the file something different it can stay (change from vbsp.exe to vbsp1.exe, But if change the name back it brings up this ( https://i.imgur.com/B6BJ8Sl.png )  I've tried putting it in the exceptions list and changing security permissions but it is not changing anything. It seems after I deleted them through the virus chest they just can not exist in that folder, Anyone know how this could be solve?
