    VirusTotal is Flagging Windows .exe's

    Hello All,

    My first post here so let's hope I'm not breaking any forum rules off the bat (specifically my posting of a Mega video link). I'm pretty keen to get this looked at so I haven't taken the time to read through all the rules yet but will very shortly - sorry if I happen to break any right now.

    Could someone please take a look at the video (link provided following) to see if they have any of the same sort of deal on their computer?

    I am currently running:

    Windows 10 Pro Retail
    Version 1809
    Build 17763.134
    All Windows Updates are current
    Program Version scan with Sumo Lite and all programs patched

    Some but not yet all of my system specs have been filled in for my account to further assist.

    The problem:

    Some of the default Microsoft .exe's are being flagged by Process Explorer with Check enabled though they all seem to be running from the right locations being either WINDOWS\System32 or Program Files\WindowsApps.

    This happens regardless of whether I use the 32 or 64 bit Process Explorer.

    I regularly run sfc /scannow which comes up clean - I am also in the habit of running DISM commands including RestoreHealth on occasion (E.g., once every 3-6 months) which also comes up clean.

    I am not running any dodgy software (I.e., cracks) and do not intend on doing so.

    Here is a link to the video I made in OBS showing the results:!q1YXnKRC!8gTMwksk8...HlAWdXf-I8Q1h0

    The computer seems to be working fine and all scans I run come up clean whether it be sfc /scannow, DISM, Windows Defender, MalwareBytes, ESET Online Scanner, Trend Micro Housecall and so on.

    I am taking a guess and hoping that these are all false positives(?) at the moment but am not sure and it seems like an awful lot of default Microsoft .exe's being reported - after opinions and/or advice - should I be concerned?

    Voice Recorder Flags Disappeared


    I realize the problem you are facing with the voice recorder.

    To assist you better, please answer the below:

    • Are you using windows built-in voice recorder or any other 3rd party voice recorder application?

    • If you are using Build in Windows recorder, how did you put the flag?
    If you are using built-in Windows recorder, there is no option to put a flag on recorded voice. Provide us the screenshot of recording interface with Flag.

    Refer the steps given in the below link to provide us screenshots:

    How to include a screenshot in your post

    In case if you are using any 3rd party recorder, then I suggest you to contact the developer of the application for further help.

    Thank you.
