I was using the latest version of WebSite X5 - Evolution when it disappeared. Fortunately I had just saved my file.

It turned out that Malwarebytes had identified it as Ransomware. I've put in a ticket with them.

Anyone else had this?

You can go to bin and mark it safe. I got jack of false positives so now rely on built in Win10 security and firewall.

Are they referring to the program or the cost of credits?... :)

Adrian, there is nothing wrong with WX5, any new code is subject to false positives from any anti-virus, especially if combined with a firewall. I have had to deal with issues caused by avast, kaspersky, norton and avg in the past and will no longer use them for these reasons and performance issues. Windows Security has only been a pain briefly some years back (although the Windows Firewall has again prevented me from scanning the qr code to check mobile layout :-(.

Hi Esahc,

I think that Adrian was having a laugh, giving all the complaints about the purchase of "credits".

I've reinstalled it and Malwarebytes didn't make a fuss this time.

Thanks for the comments, and the laugh.
