Hello @christus and :welcome:

That simply means that something changed the default setting on your computer. With no other detections I'm sure it safe to exclude this detection if you like and you're the one that changed it.

You can let Malwarebytes change the value back to the default value that it shipped with from Microsoft if you like.
