Hello and welcome, maizeandblue:

This particular sub-forum is for issues with the MBAM program - we do not work with malware or malware removal here.

If you have a suspected malware, your best bet is to post here: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showforum=51

Please be sure to follow the instructions in the Important Topics pinned at the top of that forum.

Alternatively, you may wish to upload the file to virustotal or a similar site.

Best regards,
