I'm using Windows 10.

Malwarebytes is scanning right now and has detected 5 problems labeled as trojan downloaders.  One is a file located at C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\WindowsMediaSharing.  The other 4 are registry entries.

I tried scanning the file with Zemana Antimalware which I have installed but it says its clean.  I tried Virustotal as well, and it said every scan detected it as clean.

False positive or legit?  Is it possible I am infected with anything else? I'm going to quarantine them for now.

here's a screenshot of the malwarebytes results.
