  1. Okay, i guess it was a false positive then. But one more question. Why was the Date Modified changed to 11/12/2012?
  2. What the...? The MBAM scan log once again didn't get uploaded? I'll just copy and paste the scan log and post it here...

  3. Hmm, for some reason the MBAM scan log didn't get uploaded. Well here it is...
  4. Hello everyone, Today MBAM have detected that my notepad.exe is a fake trojan ms? I went to look at the file in the System32 folder and found out about some things. The reason why i think it is a false positive is because when i open notepad.exe it runs normally (opens a blank notepad). Also looking the size of notepad.exe it is only 142kb which is the average file size of notepad.exe. If notepad.exe was a trojan then i would imagine the size of it should be very big. On the other hand i could be wrong and notepad.exe isa trojan because when i looked at the Date Modified for notepad.exe it says "11/12/2012 10:12 AM" which isn't right because all of my other programs and files in the System32 folder has a date modified of the year 2006 (i'm using vista by the way). So i wasn't sure if it is a false positive or not. So i'm here just to make sure if i was right or wrong. I also have uploaded the MBAM scan log and the notepad.exe in a zip. Thank you, whoamomma. notepad.exe.zip
