Kaspersky Says bat file is Trojan?
« on: November 26, 2017, 05:43:41 AM »
Windows 10 Pro 64bit.
When I click on the button to reboot into Safe Mode in the Free version of Tweaking.com, Kaspersky Total Security gives me a warning that a bat file in Windows\Temp is a Trojan.
Does Tweaking.com create a bat file here?
And it does not go into Safe Mode either.  I tried rebooting holding down the shift key and it doesn't go into Safe Mode that way either.  I even tried the old way by tapping the F8 key when rebooting, no Safe Mode.
I ran Tweaking in regular mode and it hung on step 8 for Sahdowcopy for three hours before I stopped it.

I've had my Norton Security kick out the repair program's .exe before now and had to add www.tweaking.com to the exclusion list.

There is a file in Temp which I think relates to the system tray icon but it is a false positive for Kaspersky to snag it.

You can add www.tweaking.com to Kaspersky's list by following the steps in this article.

See if you can then boot into the advanced boot options either through the program or by pressing and holding Shift throughout a restart.

I remember my Kaspersky reported a similar file when booting to safe mode

You can submit the file as a false positive here:

Yes thanks for the link.
Unfortunately I deleted the file, so cannot submit.  Although Kaspersky still shows it as a warning.
Going to run Tweaking again to see if it re-appears.
