Hello.

I have recently bought Malwarebytes 2.0 because my previous Anti-malware solution was not good(IObit malware fighter).

I am very satisfied with the protection this program offers!
BUT, there is an issue.

It has detected that two files have been infected with malware.

Those two files are: msconfig.ini and NTkernel.exe.

From what i understand these are system critical files.

Funny thing i should mention.

Just the other day i had to re-install my Windows 8.1 because it couldn't start(it couldn't enter to desktop, everything was black, even after a few restarts, refresh attemts, system restore, etc.) .

At first i thought that the updates i downloaded didn't install right, or something of the sort, but later after reinstalling my OS, Malwarebytes ran a quick scan, and i noticed it detected two infected files mentioned above.

From that scan i have started doubting the program for my last system failure.
