How can I confirm a false postives?

Recommended Posts

I know those are false positives. The reason is they way I have my systems set up.

On windows xp sp3, I disabled the notification intentionally

On Drive D, windows 98se is installed. Malwarebytes doesn’t know that windows 98se is installed on drive D, so it thinks 888113.QFE is a Trojan. From reading it is a needed system file. I would still like to confirm this to be sure. I don't use the windows xp boot loader.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware


Database version: v2012.04.04.08

Windows XP Service Pack 3 x86 FAT32

Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

Forum Deity. Thank You. You are right I should report the registy false postives. As far the 888113.QFE I want to make sure it is really a false postive, yes I know I need to update the database first, then do a rescan. I couldn't get Ad-aware to work on my system, it is way to slow. I do have low memory though. Malwarebytes seems to work & is pretty fast even for a full scan. If the registry false postives pops up after the update, I will report it in the false postive. I assume Malwarebytes picked the 888113.QFE because it doesn't look like the file is in it's default location.
