Iomega Automatic Backup software, a very handy tool, which have used over a decade was identiifed by Malwarebytes as malware this morning. See screenshots below/attached which 4 of the 8 malware detections at 7:33am ET today Mon 12/06/2021 are clearly identified as Iomega and the other 4 may be related as detected at exact same time (cannot figure out by even Googlling how to get a text file log of the screenshot activity). All detected files are quarantined. Wondering if these are false positives or a real infection. Full scans of Norton and Malwarebytes latest versions which automatically run weekly and were run over this past weekend and both came out clean. Also attached are the First.txt and Additons.txt logs ran after the malware detecction this morning. Please let me know also any additional info you need and steps to resolve.

Once get past the pandemic shipping delays, I plan to get a new machine with Windows 10. For now have layers of security as you can see from the logs attached to some extent which compensates.

Hi, commute201.

Thank you for waiting.

It's been sometime since you asked for help. Do you still need assistance?

If yes, please run FRST once more and attach fresh FRST logs (Addition and FRST).
