  1. I just noticed there was a post in August where someone had a similar experience...
  2. I just completed another EEK malware scan after deleting adwcleaner and the scan ran smoothly with no warning by WD. Out of curiosity uploaded adwcleaner to VirusTotal and it gave it a clean bill of health, as expected.
  3. Ok. Just ran another scan and WD gives the same warning about Win32/Wacatac.D2!ml. The EEK malware scan stops at the precise moment I get the warning and what it's scanning is Malwarebytes adwcleaner_8.0.8.0.exe, which resides in my download folder. Very strange.
  4. The default Malware scan that was triggering WD doesn't scan archives, at least according to the results log. I've run multiple scans to my entire PC with a variety of scanners including WD and Malwarebytes all set to scan within archives and nothing is found.
  5. So I just ran a custom scan and with scanning in archives enabled and nothing was found. That was still with WD disabled.
  6. So I just ran a scan and nothing found but the log shows that Scan archives: OFF.
  7. So if I disable Windows Defender and run another EEK scan it should catch the trojan?
  8. As soon as an EEK Malware scan ends Windows Defender notifies of a threat being blocked (Win32/Wacatac.D2!ml). I ran the scan again and got the same result from WD. I'm guessing it's a false positive but want to be sure. I had Norton Security installed but uninstalled it a couple days ago as it was a Comcast freebie that is ending January 1st. So now I have Windows Defender, Malwarebytes Pro, and Comodo Firewall with cruelsister settings. With Norton installed the EEK malware scan never elicited any warnings. This is on a windows 10 PC.
  9. That's good to know and makes sense now. Guess I was being a bit paranoid. I really appreciate everyone's help. Thank-you all.
  10. Here's the link to the image: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsDzuI0IUwuoiJNJ5X9YF3mhpNdSgQ?e=xELXU6
  11. Yes the picture is the one I've been trying to upload for two days without success. It shows the windows notification about EEK trying to download files from OneDrive.
