Adaware shows Trojan virus Trojan.VBS.VAU

Question

Posted (edited)

:)   Malawarebytes did find and remove pup called Spigot--although I needed Adwcleaner for the removal to work.

Dear Adaware support:  

Adaware shows Trojan virus Trojan.VBS.VAU

Is this a false positive?   It cannot be quaranteened-I get a "failed" and dleting via Adaware to no effect.  

Malawarebytes scan and Kaspersky do not find the virus.   Do I ignore this result from a Full scan?   Using latest Windows 10 Pro.   --Mike M.

Hi Mike,

In which file (incl. file path) does adaware antivirus find Trojan.VBS.VAU?

adaware stopped updating I reinstalled and I will let you know if I still get the notice when I re-scan. Thanks!  -Mike M

Now with the reinstall, the full scan no longer shows the false positive. Thanks for your response!  Mike M.

You're welcome :)
I'm glad there is no false positive now.
