REG.exe false postive?

Recommended Posts

I bought C&C Generals (game) for $2 on a crappy disc. I began installing it, before windows defender (windows 10) detected a trojan downloader (troxen). I scanned it again, same results. Tried it with Malware bytes, detected nothing. Got Avast scan the disc, still nothing. Just windows defender is detecting the trojan, meanwhile Malwarebytes and Avast didnt. The trojan is contained in a REG.exe (according to Defender), which without it, cant play the game as it needs the registry. I allowed the REG.exe on a test pc and nothing strange happened, yet. So, might this be a false positive? Im just afraid of installing it on my main pc.

Thanks in advance.
