False positive?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I seem to have an issue and I'm not quite sure if I really have an issue or if I'm, perhaps, getting a false positive.  Microsoft Security Essentials occasionally pops up and says, "threats being cleaned."  When I check to see what items have been detected, the listing reads: Trojan:DOS/Alureon.J with this error code, "Error code 0x80508023.  The program could not find the malware and other potentially unwanted software on this computer."


So, I then ran an MBAM scan and got nothing.  I also ran an MSE scan and it too came back clean.


Do I really have an issue?


Thanks for your help.
