You zipped and attached your detection log instead.

Please restore those 2 files from quarantine again and when Malwarebytes detect them, do not take any actions to quarantine, because these indeed look like false positives.


Then zip and attach the following files:


C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey\AspScal.exe



In case the attachement is too big, only the AspScal.exe file will be enough.
