Malware Fighter: Acer False Positive Report

Recommended Posts

:? Malware Fighter identified one of my Acer computer files as Trojan malware. I am using a small Acer Aspire One notebook which works very well. I'm glad that I was paying attention and didn't allow the deletion of one of my necessary files. OOPS! The report is below:

Hi Kandycain,


What you probably have is a false positive. Here is the description of AcerAssist from bleepingcomputer:





I personally have a Gateway (Acer) laptop and in the year that I have had it, I have never once had the equivalent software offer an update. Whether you keep it on your system is up too you.


@The Magician consider offering reasonable and effective advice when you join a forum, if not, most people won't take the time to respond or just hope you'll crawl back under your bridge.
