Oops.

I just got a notice of:

Trojan.VBInject.Gen.7.An!t1

File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Foolish IT\CryptoPrevent\CryptoPrevent.exe - OK
File: C:\Users\Public\Desktop\CryptoPrevent.lnk - OK
File: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Foolish IT\CryptoPrevent\CryptoPrevent.lnk - OK

= Final Step =

C:\Program Files (x86)\Foolish IT\CryptoPrevent\CryptoPrevent.exe: OK.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Foolish IT\CryptoPrevent\CryptoPrevent.exe: OK.
C:\Users\Public\Desktop\CryptoPrevent.lnk: OK.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Foolish IT\CryptoPrevent\CryptoPrevent.lnk: OK.

I installed “Crypto Prevent” yesterday and do not know if this is a “False Negative” warning or not.

Yes it is a false positive as it is a vbs programme which changes specific registry keys to prevent infection from ransomeware

Is it hitmanpro reporting it ? Removal of the programme is not a problem if it has quarantined it, as the changes have been made. You only need the programme now to revert the changes or update for any new detections.

It is safe as I have it on my system :)

The notice came from "Gridinsoft Trojan Killer."

I am also using "Hitman Pro" but got no notification from them.

I trust your judgement.

Thank you for the clarification.
