the other thread was reporting/indicating that the detection of Adobe Reader entries as "adware.cinmus" in database 1351 was a FP (=False Positive)...

meaning that it should NOT have been "detected" by MBAM --- such detection was a mistake --- and MBAM has fixed their error with creation of database 1352.

if you quarantined these particular entries, they should be restored from quarantine.

if you deleted these entries, check to see if adobe reader is functioning properly... and if you have any problems with it, you might need to reinstall reader.
