Possible False Positives for Windows "Start" Menu Items?


Recommended Posts

I've had several (or more actually like 100) instances of malware being detected by MBAM. But all these detections were called Malware.Trace, and all the malware files were the Windows "start" menu items, I thought this was odd, but I didn't know if they were malware, so they were quarantined. So, after I quarantined them, all the start items were gone... Anyway, recently, I did another scan, and a few more Malware.Trace items were detected (again, they were start items). I'm wondering whether or not they're false positives?

If you're wondering what the Chinese part says, it's just:

「开始」菜单 = Start Menu

程序 = Programs

管理工具 = Management Tools

启动 = Startup
