Weird stuff going on….

Something weird happened yesterday, my win defender updated and suddenly popped a message that had found a threat, when I tried to open it it also popped a box saying that I didnt have sufficient admin privilege, something likes this (I’m admin) and when I managed to open it there wasn’t anything there. So I scanned the system with Malwarebytes, found nothing. Win defender on and offline scan, nothing. Trend Micro HouseCall, nothing. Then I tried Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool and after weird windows system32 error messages (it got me scared for a second, thought that shit had broken my system but everything’s fine apparently) it found 2 threats, one of them I thought was a false positive (it was a game executable file) but the other one was something called “Trojan.Multi.genautorunreg.a” stored in my memory.

I don’t see how can that be a false positive so I’m questioning myself: how come ESET, Malwarebytes, etc, all failed to find this shit?

I’d appreciate your insights
