    Potentially Unwanted App Found


    Hi, i got this notification about unwanted app but when i clic on remove it doesn't do anything. I even uninstalled the app but its still stuck in there and won't go away. I restarted the pc but still nothing..idk how to get rid of that thing..Like I can dismiss it but can it be taken as "problem solved"? I did it but quite unsure if it got fixed..Tho it doesn't show the yellow warning triangle anymore.. But i never had such issue with windows security before.. I'm on Windows 10 pro.. But the category doesn't have windows 10. like ****?

    :)

    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.

    Not exactly a false positive, more a precaution as MiniTool bundle optional apps from their partners in their installer. See this thread, in particular post #2 from MiniToolSupport themselves.
