I got one yesterday....

Attachment 144741

I also had the same notifications awhile back as posted here - MSE 2 Final Released!. I cleaned those files out just to be safe and all was good for awhile, even with Java installed - until yesterday.

Is MSE giving false positive on these???

Thanks.
Yes it happened to me too about 2 days ago. I just let it clean this "trojan" and then reinstalled the latast Java version. Obviously a false positive.
Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I thinking it's a false positive.

Maybe the reason why I'm not getting the Java false positive is because I always download and update my Java client through the offline installer and not the built-in update tool.

Good to know.

Just wondering, do one need to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as supposedly an additional protection or MSE 2.0 alone is enough.
From MSE download page:
"Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home or small business PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software"

Thank you guys!

I have Malwarebytes installed along with Microsoft Security Essentials, as do a lot of others on this forum. I run MSE everyday and Malwarebytes at least once a week.

It's small, non-intrusive, and in my mind it keeps MSE honest.

I've always just run one AV at a time. Anyway all I have installed is MSE.

I have it installed as well. I used to run a paid version of ESET on my desktop until it expired. I then went to Avira for my protection and saw that it was quite good with detection but had a lot of false positives as well.

After I switched to MSE, i found a good deal of balance between protection of obtrusiveness. I keep Malwarebytes as a backup and peace of mind.

Thanks guys,
I've installed MBAM few hours ago and so far so good. Seems to be working well with MSE, but looks like IE9 is loading a bit slower(could be my imagination)

As a personal preference, I did disable the network protection from MBAM and MSE because I think that my router's firewall and the Windows firewall are more than enough protection.

Maybe this will help speed things up.
