Hello auto78900:

You really should update MBAM to the latest version: (

You may then open the "Ignore List" tab and "Add" a folder where the JPEG file resides you wish to not scan. (Not recommended).

HTH :)

Comments expressed above are strictly my own and not those of Malwarebytes or their staff unless I directly quote.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware does not actually check such files by default, it will however verify that such files are not actually executables in disguise, a tactic often used by malware to infect users.
