    I installed MBAM and scanned. The scan result showed
    Trojan Agent File Doc and Settings\user\application No Action Taken.

    I have scanned with SAS, avgas, and KIS8 and none showed any malware.

    I cannot find what this entry is. I suspect it is a FP, but how do I find out what the file is? Malware net was no help.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I also have a couple of files that I strongly suspect to be False Positives. I tried to find a place to upload them for analysis but I could not find one. VirusTotal shows both files to be clean.

    Is there a place on MalwareBytes' Website to upload suspected False Positive files?

    Thank you.

    Thanks, LoneWolf.
    I have done it, and when I downloaded the log it is the ebay shortcut. I suppose it should be put into the ignore list, but it is good to know and for them also.

    I appreciate the help.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    A few weeks ago I had a FP. I went to MBAM's forum to post about it, but a lot of people where having it, so I didn't have to post. In the next update it was fixed. Very fast response :thumb:

    I had over 100 false postivies with MBAM on a folder that even didn't exsist.
    It is planned to be fixed in the next version.
