I have been using Malware Hunter by the Glary folks for some time because their utilities genuinely seem to improve my computer's performance. I recently updated to version 1.35.0.61 from version 1.34.0.59 and for the first time ever it found a number of high risk items which are stated to be Trojan horse TR/Trash.Gen affecting NapINSP.dll and oledlg.dll and maybe some others in Windows\System32. I have run Malwarebytes, Avira, replaced Avira with AVG and run that and none of those report anything.  I've checked another computer on which I have update to 1.35.0.61 and am getting similar errors there. I have a third computer on which I am still running 1.34.0.59 and Malware Hunter reports no errors there.  I then updated to 1.35.0.61 and immediately get similar errors to computers 1 and 2.

 

All computers seem to be operating fine and I have uninstalled Malware Hunter for the time being.  Is it possible that the new version is actually finding problems that were previously missed and missed by all those other tools?  Or is it more likely I am getting false positives.

 

Should I submit my computer for cleaning ?

More likely related to false positives since this only occurred after updating to a newer version.

Usually when a computer is infected with malware there most likely will be obvious indications (signs of infection and malware symptoms) that something is wrong.

If no such symptoms, I would check and report the defections to their support techs or ask at their forum.
