Crashed An Important PTC CREO Program, Unable To Restore And Possible False Positive!

Good morning and forgive the inconvenience- Today I start after a few weeks my (expensive) design program, connected to the PTC servers and connected to the official licenses, it has always worked, but today I don't know why it doesn't start. I wanted to call the support, very expensive by the way, but I have done a check, using the PC for decades, I thought of a false positive. Check Bit defender and here I found the problem, blocked and quarantined an important file for the functioning of PTC CREO (see photo). Now as instructions I proceed to restore but it returns me that it cannot, because it does not find the path. And now I'm in trouble, I'm stuck with the program and can't continue. Can you help me manually find the file to restore, or the folder you ate. Look at the path, there are no more folders on my PC. Thank you very much if someone can intervene, I also translate into English and I hope not to say nonsense. Antonio

1 imagine quarantena

2 imagine fail restore

C/User/app data/Roaming I'm sure it existed in roaming I had other things and now it's gone

To all of you, thanks for your help and interested viewing. Antonio

  • Good morning, thank you for the professional and very detailed answer, I have already reported the problem via email, and now I have filled out the form reporting everything again. My fear is that it stopped the Local raw and roaming and they disappeared, so in restoring it does not find the folder to put them back in place. I am stuck with a job, and they urgently ask me to change designs which is impossible and I am desperate. If only I had an indication in some tutorials of where the quarantined files are, I would move them manually but I cannot find them. I will wait but I am afraid that I will have to spend a lot to fix the PC, bit defender did not have to block an expensive program, they should have first of all, the tables of the programs declared official and also expensive and therefore go to avoid them in the projects. On the other hand, this is a Russian roulette, and very risky! A programmer told me that if the locales have been touched and roaming, there is a risk of having to format and it would be huge, even very heavy damage. For now I am stopped and I limit myself only to writing here and the pc is not altered for any reason, waiting for them to resolve. Thank you so much Antonio from Italy

    In that case, we need help from a dude named @Alexandru_BD A.K.A. SupermanAlex, because he can prioritize your ticket or even fordward the ticket to Tier 2 or Tier 3.

    Wait for his response, since there is nothing much that can be done here on the forum.

    Kind regards.

  • Thank you very much, I await news and we hope. They phoned me now about the drawing problem, and I managed to move it to next week, hoping it will be back up and running PTC CREO elements 19, hopefully. You are a good professional and a good person, I wish you the best. Antonio

  • Hello, I still have no news and I'm still blocked, the support is contacted, I wrote here but I'm still stuck and I'm getting into serious trouble if I don't unlock my 3D program.

    Thank you very much!

    @Alexandru_BD @Mike_BD Kindly check on this. Thanks.

    Hi @leccocun ,

    The quarantined item is a shortcut to start the program from the start menu. Can you post a screenshot from the events menu, with the detection message? What we require is the message that contains "Detection ID: ...".

    Regarding the software itself, are you able to run it from its install location? If not, what happens when you try to run it? Does it crash? Do you see any message on your screen?

  • Hello, here I don't see anything to open, I don't understand!

  • Gjoksi


    There is nothing to open.

    I just tagged Alex and Mike, so they can pay attention on your post and comment. Just a little reminder for them on your issue.

    Best regards.

  • Hello @leccocun,

    I have located your open tickets and asked our engineers to prioritize the request. They will provide a response as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your patience.
