    No problem everyone. SF posted the update in the scrapebox sales thread. Just passing on the info.

    Have you upgraded like I mentioned in my previous post?

    MSE is stopping the exe file, it pops a warning when you download it, then it pops another one when you try and install it. It is coming up as Wowsteal.gen!A

    It just instantly quarantines the exe file and I don't really want to disable that until I hear from someone that its fine. MSE is not very touchy (IMO) so i tend to pay attention when it goes off.

    Oh, I didn't realise it was throwing up virus warnings. I don't use MSE on my servers, but just tested it on my laptop and got the same reaction as you.

    Here's a VT also showing 3/41 hits.

    https://www.virustotal.com/file/288...3dce72254bf949704d947e2badba6c6608f/analysis/

    I dare say they're just false positives, but I understand wanting to be cautious completely.

    Man! I have just started getting this error today too after the latest update. Did you fix it? MSE does not let me open it at all and keeps deleting scrapebox.exe

    It must be infected

    Check the scrapebox sales thread, there's an explanation there of what might be causing the false possitive and how to disable MSE for your scrapebox folder.
