Before I go and do something drastic like deleting some crucial system files, I thought I should check and see if these are legit. One from the registry values and one Windows file. This is the MBAM log, and I'd appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

Hi susie0884, and welcome to Malwarebytes.org

You most likely have a false positive here. This is usually just a small non-essential program to remind you to clean your print cartridges in an hp printer.

Please update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and exit. Then run a new quick scan with the developer option by going to Start -> Run and entering "mbam.exe /developer" without the quotes.

/developer: creates a log to be submitted with false positive reports. Will open a window on the Desktop to allow user to initiate a scan. Upon completion of the scan, user is presented with a choice to remove items, ignore items, save a log file or return to main menu. User should select save log file. Log will include a generated hash number for each detected infection. If no infected items were found, no hash number will be generated and the log will appear as a normal log. Afterward, user should exit without taking any action.

If it still shows as an infection, reply back with the contents of that log in a new topic at the False Positives forum. One of the experts there will advise you.
