    Safety Scanner Confusion


    When I run the Microsoft Safety Scanner I get notice of 3 infected files -during- the scan. But, when the scan is complete, the response window says nothing was found. I don't understand. Do I or don't I have infections? Thank you for helping me.

    :)

  3. Update Issue Safety Scanner

    If you are using Windows Defender, you won't need Safety Scanner, as Windows Defender contains all malwares which are in Safety Scanner list and it has additional protection like cloud-protection, just make sure it is update and run a full system scan with
    it.

    Do you have access to those files which has been detected with ESET?

    Could you post back the list of malware?
