Installed cheat engine months ago, concerned about viruses.

I had it installed on my external SSD which died on me a few weeks ago, so it’s gone and I have since then removed the installer and deleted temp files in my main SSD.

I read online on their forums that since it’s used to cheat with I.E. modify memory that WD will see it as a virus, below are what I “allowed” to run on my PC for a while. I didn’t notice any bad behavior or anything different, and today I got super paranoid, ran an offline scan, 4 full scans with nothing coming up, I have nothing strange running in my task manager.

Names of the threats: PUA:Win32/FusionCore.C, PUA:Win32/Presenoker, App:Cheat_Engine_BundleInstaller.

I have uninstalled Cheat Engine, deleted the AppData folders, and all the temp folders containing it, I understand that WD uses generic names to warn of viruses, but I just want to make sure I don’t have any. I don’t plan on downloading CE ever again after learning it has bundled malware in the past.

Again, if there is any way for me to check for leftovers or actual viruses, please and thank you.

it’s because cheat engine bundles other stuff with it, also don’t use cheat engine they bundle fake antiviruses like sugarzo with it
