That's what I like about Norton AV--it doesn't scare me to death.

It depends on where you got the ISO from.

How long have you had Windows 7 installed?

That list you provide look like it cane from an XP or98 machine.

Did you get s trigger from Malware Bytes, or did you just perform a manual scan?

How is your machine running?

It's not from ISO, because I had it running for about 2 weeks or so..

And performed scans with MBAM full scan several times before and didn't catch even one infection.
Performed several times Mcafee full scans as it's my current real-time AV.
Performed random on-demand scans with Windows Defender.
On-line scan from ESSET.
Yeah, I may look like paranoic for just 2 weeks doing so many things..

And now I had reinstalled windows for several reasons:
1- I had reinstalled windows and updated drivers and got System Image which I didn't first time.
2- Forgot my admin password to Defncewall Now after reinstall I use it again.
3- to get rid of junk I got while testing which programm will work beter for me on win 7, now I now which to install for particular task.
4- Was testing if my Original Factory Recovery portion is working (seems it's not working after Windows 7 install )

Anyway after getting that, I formatted, burn new disk from another laptop (but from the same ISO) and reinstalled again.
First task installed McAfee Suite. And reinstalled drivers got system image (but just on other partion on the same drive so it is little bit pointless). Created Several restore points.

Haven't scanned with MBAM yet, will do it soon.

And infections were founded when I performed manual scan, ( It was when I installed all drivers and necessary programs and was updating MBAM and just pressed full scan )

P.S. And I can't see anything weird about system performance.
When I got results of scan I did perform Full scan with McAfee (results: clean)
Scan with HitmanPRo3 (results: clean)
Quick scan with Windows Defender (results: clean)

I think new scan with new and updated MBAM should show if those were False positives or not, yes?

I misread your post at first, but it looks like all of the FPs have been taken care of with database version 3288 and beyond. Hopefully this issue is past.

I hate false positives
Malware is bad, but false positives are almost as bad, in my experience. I know no single antimalware is perfect, and free programs aren't near the quality of pay programs, and you often have to run 2 or more to find everything. MSE is.... well, it's free and part of Window sand while it offers...
