C:\install.exe (Trojan.Agent)

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm running MBAM 1.41 Database version 2955. After completing a scan I got the following warning. Is this a safe process which I can de-quarantine or should I remove it. Thanks.

The root is a known malware infection loading place so MBAM is pretty aggressive about .exe files being there. If you think it's a legitimate file, you can just move it into another folder. You can also upload it to virustotal or jotti for analysis. I had a failed Windows update not too long ago that left some legitimate Microsoft files there by accident. MBAM did NOT like it. In that case, I just deleted the files, performed the update again, and all went well.

Just curious.

On looking at jotti I notice they use Quick Heal among the scanners. If my memory serves me right wasn't this listed as a rogue AV / spyware product in the past and possibly the not-so-distant past?

Somebody refresh my memory please. :)
