I scanned my computer with MBAM and it found nothing, I had Database version: 1708 at the time and it found nothing. Then I clicked update after the scan an let it up so scanned again an it found this.

I let MBAM remove it an let it reboot like it said. After the reboot I scanned again and it found nothing, should I be clean now if it's not a FP?

I have the same problem. This is FP :)

Thank you for posting! I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only one, should we wait for a reply before we let MBAM take it out of quarantine an back to where it was.

I recommend you not to trust eSafe. eSafe is one of the antivirus software that generates most FPs. On the basis of the results of Virustotal I would say that this is FP. PC Tools is the antivirus program that doesn't detect many viruses/threats, this is one of the reasons I can not believe it.

Based on the date of the system file (and all of the other system files having the exact same time/date), I figure all XP systems have this file and the newest Malwarebytes definition is flagging it for everyone. Only those who are knowledgeable enough to investigate these things will catch it as a false positive and come looking for answers here.

Too bad Malwarebytes only sends out new definition files once a day. A lot of folks are going to let the program remove this file without question. As a tech, I just hope that its loss doesn't cause any big problems. I'll probably add this file to the list of stuff I check on house calls so I can put it back if needed.

Yep, that's not a false positive.

If you're having Malware related issues with your computer that you're unable to resolve.

  1. Please read and follow the instructions provided here: I'm infected - What do I do now?
  2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs
  3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.
  • Please do not post any logs in the General forum. We do not work on any logs posted in the General forum.
  • Please do not install any software or use any removal/scanning tool except for those you're requested to run by the Helper that will assist you.
  • Using these other tools often makes the cleanup task more difficult and time consuming.
  • If you have already submitted for assistance at one of the other support sites on the Internet then you should not post a new log here, you should stay working with the Helper from that site until the issue is resolved.
  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.
  • There are often many others that require asistance as well, so please be patient. If no one has responded within 48 hours then please go ahead and post a request for review
  • NOTE: If for some reason you're unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one. If you can't even run HijackThis, then just proceed and post a NEW topic as shown in the second link describing your issues and someone will assist you as soon as they can.
