Is there any way I can be sure this was a false positive?


Recommended Posts

Hello. I know the rules state I need to post a developer's log of the scan, but unfortunately when I was having my problem I was not on the internet and I didn't see that I would need to post a log like that. Also, it seems that my problem may have been resolved or not a problem at all.

On the 12th I did a scan and it said a registry value was infected. This registry value was:


It was labeled (Trojan.Agent). I quarantined the item. When I turned my computer back on later I wasn't connected to the internet and I did an a-squared scan which was clean. I then did a Malwarebyte scan and it seemed that my infection came back, same registry value and same lable. I did a bootup virus scan with Avast and nothing was detected. After the virus scan I connected to the internet and updated the Malwarebyte definitions. Thankfully no infections were detected.

Was this maybe just a false positive? I'm sorry I can't post a developer's log since I didn't know about them at the time of the scans a removals. Right now all my scans say I'm clean but I'd just like to make sure.
