Hi All,

I have just completed a scan using MBAM Anti-Rootkit v1.07 and it flagged up the following as Malware:


C:/windows/kb971961-ie8.log--> [Extension.Mismatch]


MBAR then cleaned and successfully removed this entry.

My question is; should I assume this to be a False Positive and take no further action?


Kind regards,

Hi, TerryFP. This may not be a false positive, but we can take a look at the file if you like.

Do you already have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) installed? If so, you can use it's Quarantine manager to restore the file removed by Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) to it's original location. Then, zip the file and attach it in reply.

If MBAM is not already installed, you can first install it and then use the Quarantine manager.

Open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, select the 'Quarantine' tab

Select just the one entry and click the 'Restore' button.
