As there should never be a file named that in that location this detection is correct.

Its a heurisitic that detects out of place valid reserve names of operating system files.

Rename it to something else that isnt a valid windows file name and it should no longer hit.

shadow thank for your respond

i am proffisinal user deals with others problem as an expert

and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is one of my best issue to deal with alot of underground things as servers .....etc

C:\rundll32.exe is not the correct location for the file. Windows does not install this file there.

The correct location for the file installed by windows is c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe

That is why it is being detected. Cause is not in the correct location.

This file is rundll32.exe which is to run a dll as an exe more or less. The picture viewer uses it along with other programs.
