I installed mailessentials from GFI over the weekend, and Malware Bytes claimed a trojan was in the folders the program was installed in. Now I wonder if it is a malicious program. If so how to get it off my system and do you have an anti-spamware program.

 

Thanks in advance.

Since MailEssentials has built in security and seems quite reputable. I suspect what Malwarebytes is detecting is a security feature within MailEssentials. Since you don't mention exactly what is found this is just my hypothesis. I would suggest submitting the questionable items to Malwareybytes and see if this isn't a false positive.

Thanks, I just let Malwarebytes remove the suspected intrusions. I will ask this at the MAlwarebytes site.
