Spurious Trojan?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting :

Event: Process terminated
Application: SpringToolSuite4.exe
User: DESKTOP-xxxxx\nnn
User type: Active user
Component: System Watcher
Result description: Terminated
Type: Trojan
Name: PDM:Trojan.Win32.Generic
Threat level: High
Object type: Process
Object path: C:\Users\nnn\Software\sts-4.16.1.RELEASE

since I installed the above. It then proceeds to remove the file, and a number of others I am working on!

This is the latest version of the IDE, and I doubt if there's a trojan in it, but something thinks so ...

Previous version I was using is fine.

I wondered if the general behaviour of the IDE is triggering a 'malicious process' fault.

Scanning the file (and extracted files) doesn't cause an issue. It's only after 5-10 minutes of operation that it triggers the above.
