Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm new here not new to computers. My windows7 ULT 64Bit install is a few days old. Everything that's installed is paid for or freeware. My Malwarebytes version is paid for and is v1.50.1.1100

I did a C: drive Quick scan and

Malwarebytes returned this:

I did flash my BIOS yesterday and, as i said everthing on this computer

is bought and paid for except for Real temp ,CPU-Z, GPU-Z, 7-ZIP and, maybe a couple others whose names escape me right now.

My question is, was my computer infected or was the result a false positive?

Thanks for your help

P.S. I did delete the infected files.
