Recommended Posts

Alert 'Win32/Tencent.O potential unwanted application' was triggered and 


When downloading an updated version of qq (i.e QQ9.0.5.exe),  the file was cleaned by deleting and an alert of 'a variant of Win32/Tencent.O potentially unwanted application'  and

information of 'Event occurred on a file modified by the application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe (5C8D9AD934D9F670976AFAC0749DF1F37A6CA4EF)' was provided.

Please advise what exact problem / issue of this file is? Thanks,

It's a potentially unwanted application. For information what PUAs are, please read https://support.eset.com/kb2629/.

The detection is optional. If you think that benefits of using a particular PUA outweigh possible risks, you can exclude it from detection.
