Malware Bytes just popped up asking me if I wanted to block a process attempting to execute. I selected to quarantine it, and MBAM lists it as a Trojan.Dropper, and listed the item as C:\Program Files (x86)\Cobain Backup 10\cbHelpreader.exe. Obviously, it looks like a Cobain-associated file to my untrained eye, so I'm wondering if this is an actual malicious item or a false positive?

Considering the path and with this information: http://systemexplorer.net/db/cbhelpreader.exe.html

I would say it is a false positive. If you still want it confirmed you could upload the file to someplace like http://virusscan.jotti.org/en

To be sure it's not malicious.
