Hi cdshearer
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If the System Analyzer is reporting that then you should immediately run a manual scan with WSA; click on the 'Scan my Computer' button in the main app panel. If WSA detects anything malicious it should disinfect/quarantine the infected components, etc.
Post back when you have the results of the scan.

OK, well that should be good news.
I would run the System Analyzer again just to make sure that it concurs with the malware scan you have just done. If it does then great but if it still persists in reporting a threat I would Open a Support Ticket to advise the Support Team of the inconsistency which they should be able to check out for you. I hope that helps?

    So I understand that this is from 4 years ago, but i am getting the same message from the analyzer, but the scan reports no threats. Running the analyzer again, it still reports that there is a threat on my computer. It seems that it’s detecting it on the analyzer but not the scanner itself. Can you still help me?
