Hi Dan,

Can you check that you have the latest Malwarebytes installed? Your version and database seem to be outdated compared to the current one.

The version should be 1.50.1 and database version 6046 - you have Verison 1.46 and database 4052.

Be sure to have the very latest version, or you could be missing the most recent malware definitions.

Also as per Jacee's instructions : run a FULL SCAN, not a quick scan as you did originally.
