    Microsoft Safety Scanner


    Had windows defender flag some files as a 'threat' so I downloaded Microsoft Safety Scanner and it has been scanning the last couple hours...However, it has been stuck on one file for 40 minutes now.The file is C:\Program Files x86\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrotray.exeWhat can I do to get Microsoft Safety Scanner past this point? My computer pull infected files and I have been scanning for 5 hours before getting stuck on that file.

    :)
