This isn't a False positive perse, we detect exactly as what it is (PUP.PSWTool.ProductKey). We don't really detect it as malware, but as PUP, which means, potentially unwanted.

The main reason for this is, unfortunately, many malware embed these into their files in order to steal productkeys or other info. Many other AV Vendors detect these as well for the same reason.

So in this case, when you are aware you have installed this yourself and you scan with mbam, you can ignore the detection (don't check for removal).

For someone who isn't aware this is present, it has most probably been installed by malware, so in that case, the user can check the entry for removal.
