There are two issues here:
First that this stealth program of yours detected and quarantined a file from SW:TOR (which I wish I could tell you the name of for your false positive records but can't as I can't restore (or even view) the file from its quarantine location) and, secondly, well, see previous. I'd really like to be able to restore the file that your program deleted and tucked away somewhere but, again, I can't because it doesn't allow me the option to do that. I really don't relish the idea of having to go through an hour plus of reinstalling the aforementioned program to get it working properly again so could you please tell me how to recover the file?
I'd really, really, appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Let's be clear about something. Do you mean that Security Scan Plus, which is not part of the regular McAfee AntiVirus program suite, deleted something?
Okay, thanks. I asked because I've looked into this little program in the past to see what it does, and it doesn't scan your file system. It checks memory, browser cache and cookies and that's about it. It's actually the first time I've heard of it doing anything like this. Were you running the Star Wars program at the time it did its quick scan? If so, then Security Scan Plus must have flagged it as malware - but where it put the file if it decided to quarantine it I can't be sure : it depends whether you've got a regular McAfee installation on your machine. What AV program are you running?
Well, thanks once again for your quick response.
To be fair, while it did the scan spontaneously (again, I didn't even know it had been installed on My machine) when it threw up the possible threat detection I OK'd it to be quarantened (I mistook the McAfee Shield for The Malware Bytes icon). Then, thinking that was a little odd, I launched SW:TOR and an error message popped up saying that it couldn't find a certain file (the one that Security Scan Plus deleted). Realizing that I could simply restore the file then delete SSP afterwards, I went to look up the file in the McAfee quarantine and found there was no option to do this.
As for your question, I'm running AVG and just checked the Virus Vault (trying to anticipate your next action) but there doesn't seem to be the deleted file that I'm looking for.
