    Just did a scan with MBAM and found 10 registry entries Trojan.FakeAlert,i guess they are harmless.But SAS found nothing,so SAS dissmissed it as benign. Any opinion ?

    It basically comes to this : Why different results ? SAS overlooked it ?
    AFAIK there's no dropper,.exe or dll infected files found by MBAM only registry entry.Up until now,every scan with SAS or MBAM always showed clean. Bit puzzled only remnants. o_O

    Most probably a false positive due to recent updatings of MBAM.
    I ran recently SAS again, to do another test in my experiment and suddenly it found 2 tracking cookies on my system partition and I have these cookies for quite some time. So why didn't SAS report these cookies earlier ?
    These cookies are caused by a website where I buy DVD's sometimes, I need these cookies, so I ignored the warning.
    No Anti-Malware is going to tell me what to do.
