If one or more Microsoft anti-malware products have mistaken your program for another program, it might trigger a false positive. The first step to resolve a false positive result is to fill out the following False Positive Report form. Please submit your request in English if possible, as submissions in other languages may cause a longer response time or impair our ability to respond completely and correctly.
IMPORTANT NOTE: End users that believe a file is not malware or potentially unwanted software and should not be detected by Microsoft anti-malware products can send these files to Microsoft for review by using the sample submission page and checking the "incorrectly detected as malware" checkbox.
Software vendors should use this form only for circumstances in which Microsoft antimalware products might have mistakenly identified your software program as another. If you believe your product has been incorrectly classified, or if you have recently updated the behavior of your program and want to request reclassification, please complete the vendor dispute form.
The research team will confirm the receipt of the form, contact you with follow-up questions if necessary, and provide the results of the investigation by e-mail through the contact information that you provide in the form. Microsoft will make every effort to expedite the process and respond in a timely manner.
If you have questions about this form, you can contact Microsoft at email@example.com.
Note: You must first complete and submit the False Positive Report form to initiate the review process.
You must complete all of the required fields in the form (marked with an asterisk *) before the Microsoft anti-malware research team can initiate an investigation. Please submit your request in English if possible, as submissions in other languages may cause a longer response time or impair our ability to respond completely and correctly.
