I scanned an infected computer with MBAM MSE and Kaspersky. All found trojans and removed them.
Then ran scan with Superantispyware and it found new trojans:

Trojan.Agent/Gen-IExplorer[Fake](2 items)
Trojen.Agent/Gen-PEC (2 items)

I then scanned the folders where the files were kept with Kaspersky and MBAM and they came up clear.
Are these real trojans or are they false positives?

Anytime you suspect a file detection may be a false positive, get a second opinion by submitting it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

You can submit the file(s) directly to SUPERAntispyware downloading and using the SUPERSampleSubmit Utility. The direct download link for this utility can also be found here.

Alternatively you can report the results at the False Positives Forum but they will probably ask you to submit a sample.

Once a file is received, a technician can examine it in more detail and provide a report letting you know the results.
