Possible false positive


Recommended Posts

good morning. Today i was doing my scans with malware and it found a trojan agent.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run|47510 (Trojan.Agent) -> Data: C:\PROGRA~3\LOCALS~1\Temp\mscotiwy.exe -> Delete on reboot

i have been going over trying to kill this thing non stop all day running in safe mode/safe mode network/safe mode command prompt. Everytime i complete the scan it find this and removes it but when i shutdown and come bac kto safe mode its back again. I have run both AVG and HitmanPro and both have not flagged this file as a trojan.

Has anyone else come accross this i have searched the interent and nothing has come up regarding this location number.

I also posted this to the general forum sorry for the double post i wasnt sure which one to post to.
