Security.Hijack Reg Value disallowrun

Recommended Posts

Hello, Malwarebytes has found two registry values that it marks as a security hijack. Here are the logs:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malwarewww.malwarebytes.orgScan Date: 23/06/2014Scan Time: 1:27:47 PMLogfile: malwarebyteslog.txtAdministrator: YesVersion: Database: v2014.06.23.11Rootkit Database: v2014.06.20.01License: FreeMalware Protection: DisabledMalicious Website Protection: DisabledSelf-protection: DisabledOS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1CPU: x64File System: NTFSUser: xScan Type: Threat ScanResult: CompletedObjects Scanned: 341232Time Elapsed: 3 min, 20 secMemory: EnabledStartup: EnabledFilesystem: EnabledArchives: EnabledRootkits: DisabledHeuristics: EnabledPUP: EnabledPUM: EnabledProcesses: 0(No malicious items detected)Modules: 0(No malicious items detected)Registry Keys: 0(No malicious items detected)Registry Values: 2Security.Hijack, HKU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|1, msnmsgr.exe, , [e9fea7d4601b3ef87e98d2d26e95758b]Security.Hijack, HKU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|1, msnmsgr.exe, , [d01749324c2fe74f51c55f4518eb24dc]Registry Data: 0(No malicious items detected)Folders: 0(No malicious items detected)Files: 0(No malicious items detected)Physical Sectors: 0(No malicious items detected)(end)

MSN has never been installed on this (it doesn't even exist anymore, does it). 
Quarantining doesn't seem to do anything, as running the scan again finds the values again.
Adwcleaner didn't help, nor did spybot.
Finding the reg values manually shows that they can't be modified or deleted.

Do we know what this is? What's the point of blocking that application to run, or what is this doing in the background?
