Hello. :thumbsup:

I have a Windows 2000 laptop that is running smoothly; no popup ads, no unusual hangups or bluescreens, but when I ran Malwarebytes' Antimalware, it found a trojan.

Superantispyware found nothing and neither did Spybot or Norton. Could this be a false positive?

I did not clean it, thinking it might be a FP. Also, when searching for the file, I could not find it for it doesn't exist on my computer.

Here's the log:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.24

Windows 5.0.2195 Service Pack 4

I'm going to scan with a-squared next to see if I find anything with that. I'll post later to update. In the meantime, what is the take on this?

Trojan Agent is a generic name given to many types of malware or sometimes files that may be falsely detected as malware.

The filename ATMGR.EXE is used by objects that are classified as safe. It has not yet been seen to be associated with malicious software.

ATMGR.EXE

If you suspect false detections, report them to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Support > False Positives.
