Asking to list new programs or search for updates - the result is this:

Found: Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml
file: C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\nsg1B24.tmp\update.7z

what shall I do?

Text File, False Positive, Update

update.7z only contains a text file, so it would be impossible for it to contain that malware. Make sure you update to the latest definitions as the current ones on both Windows 10 and Windows 11 have no issue.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Trojan:Script/Sabsik.FL.A!ml

Same issue but reporting a different virus: Trojan:Script/Sabsik.FL.A!ml

I have updated the virus definitions. This is only happening on 1 of 3 machines but it keeps repeating on that machine no matter how many times i try.
