    Below is from their support area.



    1) A list of each reviewing partner and their findings. Possible findings are:


    • Undetected: The given engine does not detect the file as malicious.
    • Suspicious: The given engine flags the file as suspicious.
    • Unable to process file type: The given engine does not understand the type of file submitted and so will not produce verdicts for it.
    • Timeout: The given engine reached VirusTotal's time execution limit when processing the file and so no verdicts were recorded for it.

    Make of that what you will.

    Take a look at this PDF:

    Search it for the word "detected". I got 21 hits, some related to Virustotal.

    Trojan Detected in OneDrive


    Can I just make an observation here?

    From your pic, it appears that the executable OneDrive.exe has been flagged as a virus. This sounds like a FP (false positive) to me.

    I would suggest you upload that file to VirusTotal website and see what comes up there.

    I have the same file on my system in the same location and it's 536KB. I do not use OneDrive on this particular machine.

    I do not think you are infected with anything. Did TDSSKiller find anything on that file?

    Sounds like a false positive. 1 detection out of multiple scanning engines (1 out of 70 VirusTotal/ 1 out of 37 Opswat) is normally a good sign for being a false positive.

    If I were you, I would ignore it.

    If you want you could upload the installer file to other services and see what they say:

    And... I looked at the
    Sandboxie forum
    and didn't see any related reports.... You might want to post your question there...
