False positive against MWB 1.50.1 by Avast


Recommended Posts


I have been using Malwarebytes for years and never had a problem, but today my brother-in-law asked me to clean up his laptop. He is using Avast anti-virus and during Malwarebytes installation, it found two root kit entries in two MWB .sys files. Is this possible?

I installed MWB and the Avast is version 101227-1. The PC is running Win Vista Home Premium service pack 2 on a Toshiba A205-5804 lappy.
