Hello, I recently scanned my computer with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and got 6 hits.

2 of the hits are concerning, it says that the xcredist_x86.exe in both directories of Modern Warefare 2 and Fallout 3 are Adware.Droppers.

The other 2, Super Fast Shutdown and SolarlLight.exe is of no concern. And the system restore files are of the vcredist_x86.exe I guess?

The log is attached.

While i'm posting, I might as well ask, I have BitDefender, and I usually get asked by Bitdefender Support to get rid of Malwarebytes because its conflicting, but then I say that it doesn't have realtime protection enabled, so does Malwarebytes conflict with Bitdefender even though the realtime protection isn't enabled for Malwarebytes?

Without realtime protection, Malwarebytes doesn't conflict with Bitdefender.

Please pack the file(s) in an archive, protected with the password infected (with WinZIP, WinRAR, 7-ZIP, etc).

C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Skillz MS\SolarLight.exe

C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\#readme#\VC80_Redist\vcredist_x86.exe

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\Redist\vcredist_x86.exe

C:\Program Files\Super Fast Shutdown\shutdown.exe

Send me a PM with it.(if it's too big, upload it on www.rapidshare.com or other server and send me a Pm with the link).
