    I have a problem I've never seen before. When I run SuperAntiSpyware it shows an item called Sytem.BrokenFileAssociation. It appears to get rid of the file and says I have to reboot the computer to be rid of it, but then when I run the scan again it's still there.

    I even ran it in Safe Mode and it didn't show up in SuperAntiSpyware in safe mode, but as soon as I rebooted in normal mode and scanned again it was back.

    Can someone please tell me how to get rid of this problem and what it is? Could it mean I have a Trojan?

    Thanks in advance,

    I had the same problem and I contacted the co.
    They told me it is a false positive and to correct it, after the scan - highlight it and click "manage" and "Allow"
    The scan will then ignore it and it won't show up again.
