    Microsoft safety scanner 1.355.787.0 infected files

    When running a safety scan I found 2 infected files the scan said everything is clean but they are still there. These have me extremely paranoid, should I just wipe the full drive and reinstall windows?! I am unsure if it's doing any harm and this is the only scanner that picks these 2 files up.

    When running the malicious software removal tool, it says that I have 2 infected files whilst scanning, but then at the end it says that there were no infected files.

    When running the malicious software removal tool, it says that I have 2 infected files whilst scanning, but then at the end it says that there were no infected files. This happens with the quick scan and the full scan. What does this mean? I've seen other
    responses where people have said that the tool has deleted these two files, but it always says that there are two files.

    microsoft safety scanner found infected file, but give no virus at report

    Hi Mrpatate76.

    I'm David, and I'm happy to help you.

    Microsoft Safety Scanner may report that it found threats before the end of the scan and show no detection at the end. What happens is that it finds possible infections, but at the end of the scan, it does a full check on these items, and it may find that there is no infection.

    This is normal behavior for Microsoft Safety Scanner.

    Therefore, if at the end of the scan, no threats were reported, nothing was found by the Microsoft Safety Scanner.

    If you think your computer is infected with a virus, I suggest you do a full scan using Malwarebytes as a second opinion.

    Download through this link: Malwarebytes Cybersecurity for Home and Business | Anti-Malware & Antivirus

    IMPORTANT: When installing, a 14-day trial will be activated. I suggest disabling this trial to avoid conflict with your current antivirus. Access the Malwarebytes settings (gear icon at the top of the window), tab "Account" and click "Disable".

    After scanning, you can uninstall it.

    Malwarebytes alone may not be able to detect if it is Adware, so use AdwCleaner as well. It is very effective in removing this type of infection.

    Download through this link: AdwCleaner - Free Adware Cleaner & Removal Tool | Malwarebytes

    IMPORTANT: AdwCleaner detects pre-installed software and allows you to remove all of its features to improve Windows performance. It might be some software you need. So ignore this option or uncheck the software in the list provided after scanning.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions.
