ADWcleaner object


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I ran full scans today on my pc and Malwarebytes 3 came back clean as did Kaspersky.
I decided to run latest adwcleaner and it found an object listed as:

"***** [ Registry ] *****

PUP.Optional.Legacy, [Key] - HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{8BF0126F-A5B7-4720-ABB2-2414A0AF5474}"

I have spent hours trying to figure out what the item is before i remove it as I have had programs goof up before when I removed items using adwcleaner.
So my question is does anyone have any idea what it is or how to find it?
i just don't want to screw up my programs again so that is why I am asking.


Thanks in advance

You're welcome. :-)

It may not be Norton next time, it could be another AV that gives some sort of detail.  Any time there is a detection that you want to know more about, just 'Google' the clsid, In this case, I just searched 8BF0126F-A5B7-4720-ABB2-2414A0AF5474
