MBAM detected possible false positives in old programs in my PC?

I attached a zip file with the four EXE files from old programs. Here's MBAM's text log requested:

Wow, thanks! :) So far, suopgui.exe still hasn't been fixed.  I will recheck in a few hours.

Tried to fix this one again. Please give it some time (max 10 minutes) in order to have it populate, so detection won't happen anymore.

If still detected on your end after ~10 minutes from now. Perform the following steps: 

  1. Totally exit/shutdown Malwarebytes.
  2. Go to here in explorer: C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
  3. Delete the following file only: hubblecache
  4. Then you can restart MBAM and the cache file will rebuild on the next scan.

I just rescanned, but got the same results. I exited MBAM and deleted my 12:22 PM hubblecache  file to retest. It worked. Thanks. What happened there?

Glad to hear that worked. I think it just clears any cache / history that Malwarebytes had of that particular file. So when the history was cleared, it assessed the file again and sees that it's now on a whitelist. Hope that helps

That sounds like a minor bug to me. ;)

After some time it automatically refreshes the cache file. It would of fixed itself after 24 hours.
