fuerboos is a generic detection by Defender. You need to tell us what file or files defender found it in

it might be genuine or might be a false detection

open defender security centre from control panel or settings , click on virus & threat protection, then threat history

Hello dvk01

https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...a-folder-moved-from-windows-10-forum.1221468/

I downloaded a free trial of WinZip to send a folder by email from a well known source which I will not name for legal reasons. The download started so went for a cigarette, on my return I clicked on Save then another download started titled:-

file: C:\Users\Brian\Downloads\WinZip Pro 23 Crack.iso->WinZip Pro 23 Crack.exe

As soon as I noticed this I clicked on Internet connection and clicked on disconnect. I ran a scan with Windows virus tool which detected this, also ran an online scan from F-Secure, MB's and SAS, none of these detected anything. I checked the Download folder but that was empty. Have run Windows scan three times since and it's showing clean.

Me, a little old fashioned but I was always taught if you want something then you pay for it. Should I report this to the company or leave well alone?

That is obvious from the name that you got caught out by a bad advert or site & as well as the genuine winzip trial, it tried to download the crack to avoid paying for it

It looks like defender fixed it OK so there should be nothing more to do

I need to know exactly what & where it is finding it
I told you in post 2 where to look for the logs. I can't help without that

I need the name of the file & location defender finds the malware

Hello dvk01

I believe I gave the information you ask for in post 3, the file name and location. Rightly or wrongly you give the impression that I am annoying you, if that's the case then I apologise. Today I took my PC to a repair shop who scanned the Hard Drive, they located the Trojan and removed it for me.
