In the last few days I received 2 notifications that there is some ransomware on my computer. I deleted it and today there was another message - "Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware has removed a ransomware threat. Your computer must be restarted to successfully complete the process". Location: C:\Users\Ada\AppData\Local\Temp\~nsu.tmp\Au_.exe. May I still be infected? Or am I not fully protected? I'm a complete amateur when it comes to computers, so please let me know what can I do, so I don't receive those notifications any more. My system is Windows 7. Thank you!

Hello Adka and :welcome:
Please carefully read the locked and pinned topic in the following Malwarebytes' sub-forum, How to report a False Positive.

Then, start your own topic in the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta sub-forum, and after briefly describing your system's issue, please attach the requested archives from above.


You will be assisted soon. Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valuable feedback.

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.
