After running the adware cleaner this morning, it came back identifying WinZip programs folders as a malware.

Could that be false identification?

Here is the part of the log:


Folder Found:  

C:\Program Files\WinZip Folder Found:  C:\ProgramData\WinZip Folder Found:

 C:\ProgramData\Application Data\WinZip Folder Found:  

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\WinZip  



Re: WinZip - false positive?

Same here .. I deleted all Winzip folders - ran Adwcleaner - all OK. Re-installed Winzip Pro v21, and up popped the Winzip folders again. I then ran a full Malwarebytes scan, nothing. Then Nortons Antivirus .. nothing, then Microsoft's monthly malware application scan .. nothing. So, I'm not sure what's going on with Adwcleaner. And there's silence from Malwarebyte AntiExploit Premium.

It should be fixed since several hours now. Can you confirm it?

Sorry for the inconvenience.
