    Protection History Warning - Potentially unwanted app found

    This just popped up, potentially unwanted app found. Detected MiniTool_Partition_Wizard_Bundleinstaller?? Tried Remove, Quarantine - does not remove the Yellow Triangle. Anybody else seen this?? False positive?? Had 2 instances, blocked the first one.

    Unwanted App - where is it?

    If it's a UWP app (Store app) then you can try here:

    whilst everything installed is listed here:

    If that means you were using a browser, there may be a download record.
