Just finished downloading the new FH2 update and started the launcher and up pops Malwarebytes telling me that the BF2Launcher is malware and it is moving it to quarantine.  Googled the MachineLearning/Anonalous96% and found many malwarebyte user talking about false positive with this MachineLearning/Anonalous96%.  Just want to make other aware.  Using MalwareBytes exclude file feature takes care of the problem.

Hey thanks. A few of us beta testers got this as well right before release. We'll look into it, maybe message them directly or something.

I sent the folks at MalwareBytes an email about the problem and attached the exe file.  They responded a little while ago telling me that they fix the false positive reading.  I tried it and it looks like it is working now without a  problem.

Totally exit/shutdown Malwarebytes.
Go to here in explorer:
C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
and delete the following file only: hubblecache
it doesn't have an extension
Then you can restart MBAM and the cache file will rebuild on the next scan.
