False positives on brand new Samsung N120?

Hello,

I received a new Samsung N120 netbook yesterday from Amazon. I upgraded the RAM to 2 GB, then went through the Windows installation process, did the Windows and Samsung updates, then added Star Office. I was only on the internet for 2 hours max. I downloaded, installed and updated the free version of Malwarebytes from CNET, and during the first scan was surprised to see 12 infected items. I suspect these are false positives, but would like to be sure. I took no actions with the items, just restored them as I suspected they were FPs.

I updated McAfee this morning and ran a full scan and it found nothing, then when I got home from work tonight I updated Malwarebytes and ran a developer's scan (ran mbam.exe /developer). This time it only found two registry items only, which are associated with McAfee.

The first scan log is pasted below, folllowed by the second developer's scan. Please advise, thanks. I think these are all FPs, as I did very little surfing before the first scan (went to ebay and cnn maybe, I don't recall), and only went to supposedly safe sites.

BTW, you have a great product and I appreciate your hard work and dedication.
