ccleaner.exe file infected by virus!


Recommended Posts

Hi, i've got BitDefender 9 Professional Plus and tell me that CCleaner.exe file is infected by Trojan.Banker.VB.15E70689, what's wrong with this version, the previous version work fine and it's clear from viruses ... is there anyone with the same problem?

 

Forgive me my bad English!

I have reported a detailed log to MrG, he will probably have to contact the makers of BitDefender. It may be a few releases before this problem is fixed.

Well, if you are like me, and was testing BitDefender with CCleaner.exe. It may no longer work.

 

You will receive an error.

 

"The device attached to the system is no longer working."

 

The error will be something along them lines.

 

Here is a quick and simple fix.

 

Right Click on the BitDefender Tray Icon.

 

Disable Virus Shield

 

Open CCleaner and then close it

 

Now Enable Virus Shield

 

It should be fixed now.

Only the latest Version of The cccleaner was corrupt.

After download and install a V1.22.142, Bit-defender V9 not found a virus in the CCleaner.exe

 

 

 

It was not so much that CCleaner was corrupt, as stated by others in this thread, it was a false positive by Bit-Defender, as Tarun pointed out only 1 in 14 Anti-Virus programs found a problem.
