False Positives? 26 new MS related CLSID enties on a few different PCs all of a sudden.


Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post after the acquisition of Adwcleaner so posting it here on MB as well:

Original Post on Toolslib:


There are a few post on this on Toolslib and appears numerous people including 8+ PCs I have access to along with 2 friends are getting the same 26 entries flagged all of a sudden,


My post from toolslib below.




PCs also scanned and show clean with:  Avira, Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Roguekiller, Hitman Pro, Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner.  Also all have MB Anti Exploit.  Standard BleepingComputer arsenal..


This is NOT ProxyGate! (as mentioned by toolslib admin in another similar thread). Never used it on any PC.

These entries are shown to relate to MS software controls..  I skimmed the registry to verify all of these.  MS Toolbar Control 6.0, Image combo Box controls, etc just as posted in a couple other recent posts a few hours apart.  All CLSID references relate to these MS controls with no apparent malicious keys or pointers anywhere within.

I use adwcleaner regularly and today all of a sudden all 5 of the office PCs have these same 26 registry entries flagged when previously not.

Also 3 home PCs and laptops show this today when they did not the other day with the same version of adwcleaner.  One laptop has not been online since the last adwcleaner scan.

2 friends tried it and also SAME 26 entries when previously not.  Not sure if adwcleaner updates itself now because the same version did not flag these entries 2 days ago and I have the current version 6.030.  So either windows updates added something that adwcleaner flags now or adwcleaner updated and changed its prameters?


ATTENTION:  I cannot find these exact entries adwcleaner flags under the keys listed below if I search the reg manually.  These entries do not show up under HKLM\Software\classes\CLSID

They do however show up in many other registry locations referencing MS Software control CLSIDs as stated above and in a few other posts regarding this same issue.
