From time to time I have to clean up a computer remotely.  My goto tool for remote access is VNC, and I have UltraVNC preinstalled and configured on all my users' machines.


ComboFix used to be a problem for me as it would disable UltraVNC, but since I've moved on to Windows 10, and ComboFix is not supported there, so it is now irrelevant.


It seems Junkware Removal Tool has now also added detection for UltraVNC, and disables it during its scan, which kicks me out of the session and leaves me high and dry.


My workaround for this would be to enable RDP temporarily so that I can log back in and turn VNC back on, but that is cumbersome and time consuming.


Does anyone have a better suggestion?  It would be great if JRT could be launched with parameters like:

JRT.exe /ignore ultravnc.exe

I suppose prior to running JRT, a quick install/run/ and view of UVK's 'Process Manager' and 'Autoruns' might allow you to spot the miscreant app and terminate only the processes you choose, vice the 'kitchen sink' approach of JRT which will include your UVNC app....


I've had some good successes with UVK....; good luck, Sir!

Is this your topic post at Malwarebytes?...UltraVNC False Positive?.

If not, it appears the issue has already been reported and addressed.
