What detected this ?

What is the infected file name, where was it found e.g. (C:\windows\system32\infected-file-name.xxx) ?

You could also check the offending/suspect file at: VirusTotal - Multi engine on-line virus scanner and report the findings here the URL in the Address bar of the VT results page.

Unfortunately no helpful information their either, other than this looks like a fake alert rogue/scum/scamware, which hopefully MBAM will find.
