Mose definitely a false positive

Report it in the MBAM Forum:

Before reporting a false positive, you need to save a log in developer mode. This will allow us to figure out how the false positive came to be. Simply follow these directions.

1. Click the Start Menu.
2. Click Run.
3. Type in "mbam.exe /developer", without the quotes.
4. Run the same type of scan you did before and save the logfile and post it.

Additionally, please attach the file with your post. Make sure it is in ZIP or RAR format.

I can report it, but it wont be until I get on a machine with MBAM...and when that will be, I don't know...
They are normally quick to fix, once it is reported.

I love solving other people problems for them...

...You're welcome...

EDIT: I think the title should be changed...
