Today I was scanning my computer with hitman pro and it came up with two trojan detections each named as aswBoot.exe.One of them were situated in c;/system 32 and another was in  C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\setup\INF\x86 .I scanned the system with avast and MBAM afterwards and they came up with clean results.Then I uploaded them to virustotal and the 1st file which was situated in system 32 was getting detected by GData,adaware,Bitdefender,emsisoft and escan av.But other antiviruses showed it as clean.In hitman pro the bitdefender engine was detecting the the file.So I am not sure if it is a false positive or not.I have not done anything with this detection rather than saving the log file.No system slowdown or system malfunction is currently being witnessed.Any help is much appreciated.Thank you.
