Hi!  Please advise, I put in quarantine - then removed my quarantine items. ( Legit.MisusedLegit.Mshta.Generic, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSHTA.EXE )  Malwarebytes says I'm clean now.  However now I'm told that mshta is a legitimate file?  can you advise please... thank you

@yardbird - did you happen to be running a rootkit scan? Can you please provide logs from our MBST utility?

  • Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  • In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file
  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine
  • A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your desktop, please upload that file on your next reply
