MB identified two files as malware


Recommended Posts


Ran a mMalwarebytes quick scan and it identified two files as malware:



This happened when Mcafee was installing - not sure if this is a false positive / as a consequence of McAfee installing / a concidence / or real malware?

Any advice would be appreciated?

Hello Elainew and welcome to MalwareBytes forum.

Those 2 files are in temporary area and are fair game for deletion.

If you really suspect an infection and need assisted help,

Let me suggest, if you're an MBAM PRO customer, you contact the consumer help desk here.

If you are in an organization or a corporate customer, contact Corporate Support for assistance.

Otherwise, Please print out, read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

After posting your new post make sure under options that you select Follow this topic and choose one of the Email options so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
