What is YAAI?
Yet Another Avi Info is one of the best tools to display information about your avi files. You can see data like the framerate, the used codecs, the running time, the author information and the exact bitrate of video and audio. You can also synchronize your video and audio stream in a very comfortable way. The best way to learn it ist to try it out! You have the ability to undo changes before you quit the program.

It is a false positive....

It depends on the location and the file ... could you please post the entire path?

yeah, it is Yet Another Avi Info that I use quite often.
Up to now never used malwarebytes.
YAAI is located in my Library.

Must be a false positive.

Thanks a lot, I am relieved.

VERY POSSIBLE! since there are 2 different programs going by the exact same name YAAI...Yet Another Avi Info and Yet Another Asterisk Integration whereby the later is a password revealing utilty and the former is a video info/editor utility. It might have just been flagged by name only and not it's signature in Malwarebytes. This phenomenon is occurring more and more with antiviral malware utilities. And if your file is of the later form you are pretty safe.

the later would definately be flagged as a trojan because of the nature it's of discovery
