I ran a full system scan with MBAM and it came up with a hit on
C:\Windows\System32\Msdirectx.exe, calling it a Trojan.NetStop. MBAM
quarantined and removed the file, but now I see that this may be a
OS is WinXP SP3, fully patched.
False positive van MalwareBytes?

Translation of the words in Italic:

Hi there, we (Microsoft) do not have a file named "msdirectx.exe". When
you download this file you can see it has no signature of Microsoft what
is "standard" with files from Microsoft.
During downloading I got a message from my ForeFront Client Security
that this file is a Trojan, named Win32/NetStop.B
So it is not a false positive, but definitely a Trojan.
Remove from your system immediately.

So MBAM is right!
I suppose my Dutch is better than yours.
