Idp.alexa.53 appears to be a false positive, detected by anti-virus programs AVG and Avast. The detection appears when users try to install or update certain software. The detection does not appear to be associated to one specific program, and according to users’ posts on various forums, it can happen to random programs.
Malware’s presence is usually accompanied by certain signs that can often be recognized by users themselves. Among the most common symptoms are additional pop-ups/redirects when browsing, a sluggish computer without an obvious reason, programs crashing unexpectedly, weird errors, and just general unusual computer behaviour. If there is no obvious reason for such behaviour, then something is not right with your computer. But Idp.alexa.53 detection does not appear to be accompanied by any typical malware behaviour, which hints that it is indeed a false positive. Nonetheless, it’s a good idea to scan your computer with a different anti-virus program.
How to remove Idp.alexa.53
Anti-virus programs are not immune to false positives and they unfortunately happen quite often. Idp.alexa.53 does not appear to be anything more than false positive, so there is nothing to worry about. However, as a precaution, we do recommend scanning your computer with a different anti-virus software, in the unlikely case that it is an actual infection. You could also upload the file onto VirusTotal to see whether any of the anti-virus programs detect it as a possible threat. If you try numerous legitimate anti-virus programs and they do not detect anything, it’s a false positive.
When you get the notification that Idp.alexa.53 has been detected, moving the file to the virus chest will not do anything. Instead, the detection alert will appear again and again. If that is the case, you would either need to whitelist the file that is being detected, or report the false positive and wait for Avast/AVG to fix the issue on their end.
