False positives?

Recommended Posts

Paint.net is running normally for me, however my most recent Malwarebytes scan lists several plugins as "Trojan.Inject"


My other security software (AVG, etc) says the Paint.net program folder is clean. I think it's most likely a false positive but I would like to know if anyone else has gotten the same scan results. If so, did you remove the files?

(I know it's the plugins, not Paint.net, causing the issue but it seems less efficient to ask in five different plugin threads if others have encountered this problem.)

Did you download the plugins from this forum? If so, you should be ok. If you downloaded them from elsewhere, I would delete them.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Just use Microsoft Security Essentials. "Malwarebytes Anti-malware" is known to be a bit over-zealous, reporting all sorts of things so that you think you got your money's worth.
