Submit one of the suspect files to Virustotal or Jotti to help ascertain
if it is a false positive.

I did that. When it came back 'negative', I checked the MBAM forums.

Even the best programs can and will FP - it is nice to have a
programmatical consensus available online. When online is not possible,
it is nice to have an alternative program available locally for a second
opinion.

Oh, yeah, I also did that. I ran SAS, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, and Norton
AV (the corporate version), before I sent a file to VT, and checked the
forums.

It sounds like you have things pretty well covered with respect to
sorting out FP's. :o)

A lot depends (for me) on where a file is found as well. For instance
some months ago a had detection of malware in my IBM utilities folder -
I suspected FP's and did nothing - subsequent scans did not repeat the
issue. Some months later I got a detection in my Java jar's zip files -
I  quarantined (or deleted) them, because I didn't care about saving
FPed malware in Java jars.

All is well. My 12/3 update installed 3287 and the scan indicated
problems I stated.
Today (12/4) I updated and installed 3289, full scan showed zero problems.
One curious note: I don't recall having to re-start the computer after
yesterday's update. Today I received and responded to that message.
Thanks for all your replies.

Often, that is indicative of a program update as opposed to just a
definitions update. I'm not sure if Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware shares
this nature so familiar with the AV programs.

No. Our engine update consists of a new version installation. We do not
presently do things the way some, but not all antivirus companies do.
