False Positive? hklm\software\microsoft\devdiv

Recommended Posts

I run MBAM 3.06 and Avira AV manually every 2-3 days aside fr om realtime protection..  I also routinely scan with RogueKiller and Hitman Pro from time to time.

AdwCleaner detected these 2 reg entries today but not in prior scans from last week.   I've accustomed to having false positives with adw from time to time and have had issues posted and resolved here by the wonderful Fr33tux.   MBAM, Avira, Roguekiller, Hitman Pro 3.7, MSisoft Emergency Kit Scanner all are clean.

devdiv is apparently a key related to Visual Studio which I have had installed.

Fr33tux, can you confirm this as a FP?  Thank so much.
