Over the weekend my wife infected her machine with the KoobFace worm and it proceeded to attack other machines on the home network. Been pretty successful getting everything cleaned up and decided to scan my work machine just in case (at one point it was on the network over the weekend when the infection was present but not attacked - no popups for Total defender etc. like the other machines).

The work laptop MalwareBytes scan came back with three warnings all about registry entries related to Disabled.SecurityCenter. I did some research and just looking for some confirmation on my conclusions. My work laptop had Symantec Antivirus and Client Firewall running by default. It seems that these registry entries relate to certain notification in the MS Security Center being turned off and it seemed to me that it would be reasonable to assume that it is Symantec turning off these entries and safe to ignore them. I'm getting no other malware hits on this machine like I found on the other infected machines.

I conclusion is that I should not let Malwarebytes delete the entries because they are likely the way Symantec wants them - any thoughts?
