Possible false positive?

Threat: PUP.Optional.AshampooRegistryCleaner

Type: File


That's ok.  Read up it on what MB wrote about bundled Registry cleaners and since it's just an icon and does not impact the usability of Ashampoo Burning Studio, I just deleted it.

Hello Robertiy,

Welcome to :welcome:!!  It does appear that we correctly detect the file and, you may also find others to be found upon a deep scan with the latest definitions.  If you should notice any other symptoms, could you please follow the instructions below so we can see if there may be anything else present.  Since you had deleted the file it will be difficult for us to analyze it, however upon my research it was correctly detected.  In the future, it is best to 'quarantine' the files that are found so they can be restored, or analyzed further if necessary.

If you should notice any other symptoms, please follow the instructions below.  

Best regards,


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach logs to your reply if possible. Otherwise you may copy/paste the logs directly if you have to.

  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Follow this topic button and choose Immediate Email Notification
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (such as Install/Uninstall programs, using special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.
  • Also, please do not 'bump' or add a reply to your topic once it is started. Topics which appear to have replies are considered to have a  helper assisting them and may be overlooked, resulting in a longer waiting period for help.

NOTE: If you're using Peer 2 Peer software such as uTorrent or similar please completely disable it from running while being assisted here.

NOTE: Please be patient.  When the site is busy it can sometimes take up to 48 hours before someone will be able to assist you. If no one has replied to your new topic after 48 hours please contact a Moderator or Administrator to let them know.
