    Recently my prevx has started to detect many false positves (i believe they are false positives). I'm not sure why but regular files such as rads.dll (for my league of legends, it has never caused a problem before and its been on my system for a while), my chrome.exe....my kbhid.sys and alot of other sys files. it's really strange to me y all of a sudden these files are a problem. can someone enlighten me? plz and thank you for ur time.

    Please see this thread: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=300000

    And if you let Prevx remove that file just go into quarantine and restore the file or files! Also look at this: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1878595&postcount=4

    If you are still seeing FPs now, could you please run a scan and send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com? They should have all been fixed yesterday morning.

    Thanks!
