Same Infected Files During Multiple Scans
« on: February 15, 2018, 08:57:09 PM »
Sorry, newbie here. I ran a scan today and found 4 infected files. I removed them to the virus chest and ran another scan. Then 4 files with the same names/paths came up again, so I put them in the virus chest again. Ran another scan and this happened again, so the third batch of infected files went into the virus chest again. Same with the fourth scan. Fifth scan finally came back clean.

Anyone ever experienced this?? Can you tell me if these files are dangerous or if this is a false positive?

Thanks for your help!
