i scanned my pc for virus and it found virus on the file called lsass.exe found in C\windows\system32\lsass.exe .it says that the file is infected with the "Malware: Gen:HackTool.WinCred.1" 

when i click on the fix button to fix the virus problem, bullguard cant delete the file, so i dont know what to do atm, cause i've searched the file up and it is said, to be a virus... :/

I've literally JUST had this happen. Exact same file. Exact same infection.

If anyone can help, please do. I've never had any problems with Bullguard or my computer and then this happened an hour ago and I'm very worried.

I have deleted the other post as duplicate.

The problem was caused by a false positive detection that was reported and solved in a few hours, then. If you continue to have issues, please contact support directly.
