Um... my comp's saying mbr.exe is a trojan.

Well my virus scanner thing is saying mbr.exe (it's in the melty blood react english patch) is a virus trojan whatever. I was mainly wondering if I should restore it or if it really is a trojan to let you guys know. I wanna restore it but I'm not 100% positive it's not a virus (I've got a bunch of comps messed up from a virus so i don't take any chances). so anyone here know what i should do?

Theoretically it could be infected by something, but I don't think that's very likely. mbr.exe and mbr-english.exe have been detected as false positives by virusscanners before. It's probably safe to restore it. Please tell me, what virusscanner is this? I will report the false positive to them, so they can fix their virus definitions.

This very same issue comes up with Norton Anti-virus just so you know.
