constant threat notice
I keep getting this threat notice and bitdefender can do nothing about it. How do I get it to stop?
The file C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Files\S0\4\Attachments\due E-PAYCAPITA.html has been detected as infected with Generic.JS.FakeLogin.A.75CD1BBE and Bitdefender could not clean this item. A device restart is required to finalize the cleaning process.
I have restarted my computer at least a dozen times since I started receiving these notices.
Hello @Bob M.,
Try performing the steps below to perform a deeper scan of the system to clean the system from the resistant malicious file:
1 - Open the Bitdefender application and click on the "Protection" tab
2 - Click "Open" in the Antivirus section
3 - In "Rescue Environment" click "Open" and restart the computer
When you restart your computer, you enter the rescue environment. Once in this mode, try performing a full device scan.
Let the scan run through the entire system (maybe it can take hours), after scanning, restart your computer and see if the problem persists.
