Malware Fighter 3.1 Pro detected STV Player App as Trojan.

Recommended Posts

Malware Fighter detected the STV App which was downloaded from the Win8 App store as a Trojan virus. I have confirmed the authenticity of the developer of the App which is the STV Television Company.



Here is the log from Malware Fighter:


IObit Malware Fighter


OS: Windows 8


Database Version: 1440

Scan Mode:AutoCare-Idle

Time Elapsed: 00:05:57

Objects Scanned: 61793

Threats Found: 1

Save Time: 04/05/2015 00:45:13



Trojan.Generic, FILE, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\STVGroup.STVPlayer_1.2.0.6_neutral__bjkrc23rnq5bt\StvPlayer.exe, 4166447


I attempted to upload the file to website as suggested, however, windows denies me access. I have admin privileges and the only way for me to view the folder, "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\..." would be to change the owner from "Trusted Installer" to myself, however as I found out in the past doing so would render ALL the Apps in Win8 unusable, therefore I do not wish to take that risk again.


Any replies with comments, tips and feedback is appreciated.


Many Thanks,

Hi Cicely,


Thanks for your reply. I would like to add that Windows SMART SCREEN also detected that same file as malicious this morning.... This is beginning to make me wonder if it really is a false positive...

I have in the mean time, because of Windows picking it up as malicious, uninstalled the STV App.


I will await any further news you have, again I am sorry I was unable to upload the file in question.


Many Thanks, D.

Hi Davyie,


Thanks for your continual reply.


Well, sorry to tell you that we can't judge whether it is a false positive without the file you mentioned. If you can find another way to send us the file, we can analyze whether it is a false positive.


Thanks for your understanding.
