I ran a scan and found a false positive on b.exe and c.exe, files i had just created, tested a few times with 0kb files by those names and they were still detected as an infection.

This also applied to a.exe before the last update but no longer seems to.

Due to the heavy heuristic scanning performed by Malwarebytes we will most always detect most any file located at the root drive. Malware loves to hide there.

So you can do one of two things, add it to your ignore list or move it a location which is not a 'malware friendly' location.
