Probable false positive.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

MBAM flagged the registry key below, I remember this used to occur in Vista x64 some time ago.

Hello again DooGie :) .

The same applies to 7 x64 as it did to Vista. The default value set by Microsoft for this setting is the opposite of XP, which this detection was originally designed for, so you can safely have MBAM ignore it and it won't show up again :) .

ok :) Thanks for the reply.
