Newb Quesiton- possible falst positive


Recommended Posts

Please excuse me if i am posting in the wrong section. I googled and searched this site to find my answer to possible false positive associated with Media Classic Player from Cnet, but could not find a definite answer and was wondering if i could find some assistance. I downloaded Media Classic Player yesterday from Cnet and during download process, Malwarebytes active scanner found the following and automatically quarantined the item: DETECTION C:\WINDOWS\mplayerplgn.dll Trojan.BHO . could this be a false positive? i did find some related info about this issue on a forum (possibly this one) that made reference to the issue but it was dated 07 or 08. Should i delete it or ignore it. Media Player Classic seems to be working ok so far without it.

thanks in advance for your help

  • ISSUE: I've ran a scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it says something is infected but I don't think it is
    SOLUTION: Before reporting a false positive, you need to save a log in developer mode. This will allow us to figure out how the false positive came to be. Simply follow these directions.
    • Click the Start Menu
    • Click Run (On Vista/Windows 7 you can type in the search line)
    • Type in "mbam.exe /developer", without the quotes
    • Run the same type of scan you did before and save the logfile and post it in a NEW post here

If you're unable to run it via the search line on Vista/Win7 then please start a DOS command prompt by typing CMD.EXE on the search line and when it shows on the list right click and choose Run as administrator then type

for 64 Bit

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"


for 32 Bit

CD "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"


Then start MBAM and perform a Quick Scan and post back that new log as shown in the other forum link above.
