ok here is what i have done

1 - i downloaded the malwarebytes support tool version 1.1.2.471

2 - i unquarantened the file

3 - made a normal mb scan and for whatever reason now it doesnt detect that file as a trojan anymore maybe it was fixed with your latest database update ?

4 - i gathered the logs

do you still want those logs? and the file ?

Yes, please, as it could at least show why it was detected in the first place just in case there is some other issue at play here (such as a bug etc.).

Thanks
