About This Issue

When a Win32: Bogent virus software is detected, your antivirus program usually notifies you that the detected virus will be removed.

However, some users reported that they received a message that their third-party antivirus quarantined Win32: Bogent when launching the Steam client. Don't dismiss this warning prematurely, first make sure Win32: Bogent won't harm your system.

Therefore, let's understand what a Win32: Bogent file is and, if it harms your system, how to delete it.

Use System Protection

1. Antivirus

So, first check for false positives.

To do this, start your antivirus and open the Quarantine tab.

Note: the path to the Win32 file is: Bogent

  • C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\download\236850pdx_browser\32libcef.dll

Next, go to the VirusTotal website, click the Select File button and click the quarantined file.

Once the assessment is complete, you can see if the file is malicious or not.

Several mechanisms will detect any potential threat.

However, keep in mind that if only AVG and Avast find the file, this is most likely a false alert. In this case, remove third-party antivirus software from your system and run a scan with Windows Defender.

Here's how to remove a third-party antivirus:

Press Windows Key + R at the same time and type control into the search bar. Then click OK, in the new window select Uninstall a program. Next, click on AVG / Avast from the list of suggested applications and click "Remove".

After the uninstallation is complete, restart your computer.

2. Windows Defender

You can also launch Windows Defender immediately to check the win32: bogent [susp] file.

To run this inline scan, do the following:

Click the Start button and select the Settings section and go to the Update & Security section. Next, open Windows Security and make sure you have the latest version of Windows Defender installed.

Click the button to select the Virus & Threat Protection. In the options, click the Full Scan option and Scan Now. After the scan is complete and check if Windows Defender detects the Trojan.

If Windows Defender detects a Trojan horse, then the false positive can be ignored.
