Hello and welcome, trajan01:
 
It's hard to say without seeing the logs.
Some of those detections could be PUPs.
PUP = Potentially Unwanted Program
This KB topic explains what they are AND how to decide whether to delete them or keep/ignore them: What are the 'PUP' detections, are they threats and should they be deleted?
The default action for PUP detections is 'Show in results list and do not check for removal."

If you want Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove these PUP detections reported after a scan, each item must be checked.

  • To do so quickly, you can highlight one of the detections by left clicking on it.
  • Then, right click on the highlighted detection, and select 'Check All Items'.
  • Next, click 'Remove Selected'. That should address the PUP entries.

This is also explained in this recent blog post: http://blog.malwarebytes.org/news/2013/09/selecting-all-pups/

 

>>>Having said all that, if you aren't sure how to interpret the scan logs (especially what to remove and what to ignore), then I would suggest that you please follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will guide you through the cleanup process.

Thanks,
