I think MBAM just got me a false positive result.After  a threat scan it found that the registry \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run|Windows Update with data on C:\Users\wcwra\AppData\Local\Microsoft Windows|svchost.exe is a backdoor.bot,I went to the folder and it was empty,just a svchost.exe.config.

There was malware there at sometime. Represented by the svchost.exe.config

This wasnt a fp but something delete the file and left the runkey behind.

Svchost.exe should not be located in that folder.

Usually the fake svchost.exe are located alongside a config file.

Its ok to let mbam delete the runkey trace.

thanks for the quick awnser,I asked a friend to check this folder aswell and he had a svchost.exe.config aswell so I assumed this was ok,I have the registry quarantined.I am little paranoid though since the registry key was found 3 days ago,I realised it and quarantined it yesterday,is there something I can further do?
