Need Help - Win32:Malware-gen
« on: May 30, 2020, 03:51:28 AM »
Hello All -

I went to go make dinner - after locking my computer and return to a warning window of

"We've moved TF.ni.exe to your Virus Chest because if was infected with Win32:malware-gen"

I received this warning 4 times as I closed out and the warning popped each time.

Then I received....

 "We've moved VSWebHandler.ni.exe to your Virus Chest because it was infected with Win32:Malware-Gen [This appeared 3 times]

Right afterward.

I closed running applications [Browser and Libre Office Writer]

I have not had any more warnings and have attached pictures as well as Scans


Any help would be greatly appreciated in this fashion - as well.. It was just super weird and better to be safe than sorry.
