    Thx in advance


    New refurbished PC just started up with Windows 10 Pro (upgrade from Win7 I think) and refurb win10 license.

    Windows Defender keeps notifying of threat, but no solution.

    Maybe came with original pc? I am OK is I wipe drive and reinstall win10 and start over as I just started with this pc.

    Oops; two more notifications since I typed this....

    Below is a screenshot of threat history.

    What is the next step to get rid of this very annoying notification?

    Windows defender false positive - forced to allow threat


    Windows defender has started to identify C:\Windows\System32\mshta.exe as a threat [normally reported as a Trojan Powessere.G]. I use mshta.exe to run an hta custom MsgBox - I have been hoping to keep using my current CustomMsgBox tool [batch file calling a vbs-hta file] until later this year when I hope to have had enough time to replace it with a PowerShell alternative.

    Windows defender's notification lets me "allow the threat" but that seems to me to be a bigger security hole than is necessary - it will now ignore a potentially real intrusion when all I want to run is a genuine Windows component. My immediate problem is fixed but I would prefer to fix the false positive using the exclusions list.

    I cleared the 'Allowed threats history' so I could use the exclusions list instead. I added C:\Windows\System32\mshta.exe to the file exclusions list and I checked that it had taken properly by checking the exclusions list both in the UI & in the Registry. But the exclusion made no difference, it continued to detect and block the exe.

    I have repeated the attempt several times [by clearing the allowed threats list & exclusions list beforehand] and the results are the same every time
    - allowing the threat works,
    - using the exclusions list has no effect.

    I studied the relevant tutorial but have not spotted an error in what I have been doing - Add or Remove Windows Defender Exclusions

    Does anybody with experience of using the exclusions list to counter false positives have any suggestions for me?
