Is this a false positive?

Hi Folks,

Just wondering if anyone else has had this particular situation....I ve attached two "bad boys" MSE detected...so here's the interesting scenario (at least for me!)...it was caught by MSE while or just after (literally mintues after) I did a full scan using Malwarebytes....and the Mbytes scan came all clear!!....I mist say I don't have much experience dealing with bad boys (which is a good thing I like to think) but is this what you call false positive? (must confess reading up on the two named rascals they seem to be anything but false!). Just wanna get some feed back,in the least to improve my knowledge.

Many thanks for stopping by

Bleeping Computer is my mainstay for virus removal FAQs, when I was young the internet was a dangerous place and I had to use them quite often. Trust what they have.

Just to show you that not all alerts are necessarily malware.... This is an .ISO copy (created using IMGBurn) of the original GIGABYTE Drivers DVD that accompanies the GA-P55A-UD3R motherboard. A scan of the original DVD contains the same FP. GOM = Gigabyte Online Manager utility. ...
