It's not unusual for any A/V scanner to miss something on occasion. None of them are 100% guaranteed to stop everything that's out there.
MalwareBytes often detects stuff that A/V scanners do not and vice versa.
There is a submission process for unknowns here: http://vil.nai.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx so they can add the detection to their database quickly.
Does anyone know what this infection is? Or how I can tell if there is something still hiding on my machine?
Everything is running clean but I don't know what the Trojan is designed to do.......
Not having any computer issues or problems either.
I ran a Hijack this log. waiting for that to be analyzed. But I'm afraid to go to any websites with personal/finanical info e.g. my bank!
Until I am certain the computer is 100% clean.
It could have been just about anything from what I read there....or it could have been a false alarm. Submitting it first before removing it would have possibly got you that information.
Sometimes these things are mis-diagnosed too don't forget.
Thank you. I have never submitted anything before removing it as I'm always keen to get the malware off my machine.....worrying about what harm it will do. So you are saying next time, if unidentified, I could submit to the forum and leave the virus,trojan whatever file while suppor reviews it??? Wouldn't that possibly allow my computer to be harmed? I know there are false positives...so hard to tell unless it's clearly identified.

If possible try to submit it, then let MBAM quarantine it which will put it out of harms way. If need be you can always restore it using the MBAM interface.
I realise one is usually only too anxious to get rid of such things.
