After upgrading to the full version of Malwarebytes last night the first quick scan I ran earlier today picked up autorun.inf in System 32 as a malware.trace. Not certain what I was dealing with I quarantined it and then restored it when I returned home from work in order to scan in Developer mode in safe mode (log attached). The infection wasn't detected in Developer Mode so I ran a another Quick Scan (log attached) which did detect and quarantine it once again.

From what I could gather from googling system32\autorun.inf this would seem to be a very suspicious sort of file; however, Malwarebytes hasn't detected any other malware so I'm not quite sure how to proceed. Am I dealing with a false positive or a real piece of malware. The last clean scan I ran (using my old free version of mbam) took place at 7pm last night and so I can only assume that if it is malware I either picked it up from the web browsing I did last night (no downloading apart from the malwarebytes upgrade) or it was something that I've had for a while that the free copy of mbam wasn't picking up.

Either way any advice on how to proceed would be very welcome.
