Out of the blue I get a message that the Trojan.Startpage.E is found in registry item:

Trojan.StartPage.E, HKU\S-1-5-21-3272883411-1201957109-1333608562-1000_Classes\WOW6432NODE\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}, , [05b7284e7624ce68d570f00a47bd659b],

Did a full system Virusscan (Eset), and a full scan with two other Anti Malware packages (McAfee Stinger and AdwCleaner). Nothing is found. When I remove/quarantaine the item some of my icons in the System Bar are hidden after system restart. Did the scan with Malwarebytes again just now with the same resultst:

Malware-database: v2016.09.27.08
Rootkit-database: v2016.09.26.02
Licentie: Premium
Malware-bescherming: Ingeschakeld
Bescherming tegen kwaadaardige websites: Ingeschakeld
Zelfbescherming: Ingeschakeld

Besturingssysteem: Windows 10
Processor: x64
Bestandssysteem: NTFS
Gebruiker: ASRock i3770K

The only thing I can find when searching the registry for {871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D} is a reference to Classic Shell which is still working after removal of that registry entry.

Could this be a false positive since the Trojan.Startpage.E dates from 2003/2004?
