Detected Stealth Items

Recommended Posts

I am not a techie, just an average user so any replies need to be simple, please. I have the free version and it states 25 stealth items detected but not what to do about it. Do I have to do something?

Could you post of that a screenshot?

Like Sveni suggested could you provide a screen capture of the detections or let us know what the exact file paths are? If these are false positives and not malware it is possible to restore these files from Quarantine which isn't hard to do. First we need to make sure these files are legitimate though.

Hi sheilaslims,

 

So, stealth items are hidden items within your computer that could potentially be malicious. Our engine will automatically try to remove them but there are two caveats:

 

1- There will not be a display showing how many of the stealth items were removed

2- Some of the removals require a system reboot.

 

Assuming a second scan was made after a reboot, and there are still stealth items, they might have been created by some programs in your computer (which are not necessarily malicious).

 

Some details on the items that you are seeing would be useful (the screenshot Ritchie and Sveni suggested would work).
