Are these false positives?

Just ran two on demand scans, one with IObit 360 and one with malwarebytes

Malwarebytes reported nothing and scanned 192861 objects, only reason i say this is because it scanned more objects than IObit 360 so would have more chance of similar results.

The IObit scan found 3 trojan agents, here is what the log file said;

IObit Security 360

OS:Windows 7
Version:1.4.0.11
Define Version:1321
Time Elapsed:00:27:38
Objects Scanned:131037

Would somebody please be able to tell me if these are false positives or if they are something to worry about?

The zone alarm one is likely a false positive.

Boot into safe mode with networking. Update and do a malwarebytes scan. If it doesn't find anything, then you're likely clean. If you want to double check, you can do another scan with Avira.

hi, thanks for the advance. i ran a scan in safe mode however instead of updating it in safe mode with networking, i updated malwarebytes before rebooting into safemode without networking

the safe mode malwarebytes scan produced no results of trojan.agents like IObit did.

I also posted the same information on their forum and this is what they said

so i guess that i am all clear :-)
