Welcome. :)

Do the alert(s) pop up all the time or just when the computer creates its restore point? Are the files being detected located in something similar to "System Volume Information"? I would recommend deleting all past restore points and running some scans.

I think the reason it kept detecting the malware when a new restore point was made, was because windows was accessing those past restore points and COMODO's real time scanner then scanned them.

Just to make sure, you can scan with a couple more great on-demand scanners.

Glad everything worked out.  :)

If you want. I guess it's good to have. MBAM coming up clean is a good sign, so I think you're okay.


thanks for your time :)


No problem.  :)
