When scanning a file that was downloaded from the internet if Virustotal reports 2 positives out of 50+ engines what is the next step to take before assuming the 2 positives were false positives?

Contact the anti-virus vendors which detected the files and resubmit them to their labs so they can investigate.

I have produced a YouTube video showing how to upload a file to VirusTotal:

 

I show what happens when your file has already been submitted to VirusTotal before, and what happens if it never has been.

If you send me messages, per Bleeping Computer's Forum policy, I will not engage in a conversation, but try to answer your question in the relevant forum post. If you don't want this, don't send me messages.
