Odd malware detection

Recommended Posts

Every night I run a manual scan just before shutdown.  90% of the time it finds this exact entry, a Spyware.Vidar class of malware.  When I look for the file entry, it does not exist.  It almost looks like a "one time" entry.  I'm forced to clean and reboot.  If i choose not to reboot, at SHUTDOWN MBAM will do the clean and RESTART, not SHUTDOWN.  What is this odd entry that's being detected as malware and why does MBAM act this way?  Thanks.
