You may want to ask FS also.

Today have been receiving numerous virus threats from defender, all relating to jaws. This, as far as I can tell, is not affecting jaws performance. The details of the threats are as follows –


Threat detected: Trojan:Win32/Fuery.B!cl

Alert Level: Severe

Date: August 2

Category: Trojan

Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.


Affected Items:

Amsi:C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2019\jfw.exe


This has only occurred in the last day or so and hopefully is just a false positive.


Is anyone else having this problem? Should I uninstall Jaws and then re-install or maybe try a repair?


I contacted Microsoft Disability desk and the person I spoke to didn’t know how to fix the problem and apparently Microsoft will contact me in the next 24 hours to hopefully solve the problem.


Anyone got any suggestions?
