For the past two weeks now MSE has been giving me this message shortly after I start a full system scan. "Preliminary scan results show that malicious or potentially unwanted software might exist on your system. You can review detected items when the scan has completed." I get this alert upon scanning the 8,834th item svchost, right after C:\Windows\system32/drivers/1394bus.sys. However when the scan completes & I check the History, nothing in Quarantine, Detected items or Allowed items is shown. On the same token it doesn't say nothing was detected like I remember past versions used to although the main menu is green so I've been assuming that means I'm okay. Additionally, I always run a scan with Malwarebytes right before MSE & it profoundly finds nothing either. Also, the only things I've downloaded in the last 30 days were MiniTool Partition Wizard & CCleaner. Both of which are gone due to the latest CCleaner crashing immediately after cleaning temp junk & the partition wizard removed because I simply didn't need it as the new SSD I bought was defective. I practice very limited safe browsing habits & use uBlock with NoScript extension for Firefox. Although for a few days there NoScript was allowing more scripts than my specifications, which accidentally occurred when I reset it to defaults. So besides my Internet acting up a few minutes ago, there's been no unusual behavior on my system to indicate an infection. If any of you still feel I should run a plethora of different scans I welcome it, better safe than sorry.

Update: I have been experiencing random extremely high ping spikes on the game I play, as high as 6k ms. It only lasts for a few seconds though so by the time I'm able to run a speed test in an attempt to verify if it's on my end or not it's already ended.
