Here is a log of the malwarebytes scan. A trojan agent file keeps returning every time i restart my computer, malware claims to delete it but the same trojan keeps reappearing with every time i scan the computer ( past 8 days in a row ) my computer seems unaffected by the agent and working perfectly fine, however I dont want this trojan in my computer for the reason that I dont want to begin to affect my computer later, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sorry to hear you might be infected.

We cannot work on malware removal in this sub-section of the forum, so please read below for assistance with cleaning your system.

Hello and welcome to MBAM forum, rodolfolongo1:

Although we don't "officially" review scan logs or work on malware issues in this section of the forum, I noticed from your MBAM log that you are running an old, outdated version of MBAM and an outdated set of malware definitions.

The current program version is and the current database is v2012.06.22.04.

Since you mention that your computer is otherwise completely fine, you might try to update your MBAM program and the definitions, and then re-scan.

Here's how to do a clean upgrade to the new version & definitions:

  • Download and run mbam-clean.exe from HERE.
  • It will ask to restart your computer; please allow it to do so - this is very important!
  • After the computer restarts, download the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from HERE, then temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and run the MBAM installer. (Ignore all 'Recommended' or 'Sponsored' software which are prominently displayed on the mirror sites -- they are ads and MBAM does not have any association with them.)
  • Launch the MBAM program and select the trial of MBAM PRO, if you wish.
  • Then go to the UPDATE tab (if not done during installation) and check for updates.
  • Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the system tray (if using the PRO version trial).
  • Now set up any file exclusions, as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications, and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQs HERE, or ask and we'll explain how to do it.

Once you have done that, run another quick scan & see if you still get the same trojan detection.

If the same trojan detection comes up on the MBAM scan, then please follow fivealive's advice to have one of the malware experts check your system in the malware removal section.

If the scan is clean, then it might have been a false positive -- however, feel free to be on the "safe side" and proceed to the malware removal section anyway, as advised by fivealive.

@ fivealive:

It seems that rodolfolongo1 has already taken your original advice to start a post in the malware removal section. :)

The malware experts over there will help him sort it all out, I'm sure.

@ rodolfolongo1:

It would still be a good idea to update both your MBAM program version and your database version, and then to re-scan, as I suggested in ^^^post #3^^^.

Neither fivealive nor I am authorized or qualified to provide malware diagnosis or removal advice.

So it is entirely possible that you are infected.

I expect however that updating MBAM & re-scanning might be one of the first things your helper might suggest.

Anyway, I'll defer to the experts over in the malware section. :)

Best regards,
