False Positive maybe?

Recommended Posts

Hi :welcome:

2minutes ago MB found virus in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: ("regedit.exe" "%1") Good: (regedit.exe "%1") but I think that this is a false alarm.

Have a nice day. :)


This setting is actually something which was changed by another piece of software likely a registry tool and is only detected because of that. This isn't really a false positive in malwarebytes. Malwarebytes sees and reports that the association for these files are not the default ones as set by Windows (since malware may alter these associations as well). When you select to remove in mbam, mbam restores it to the default associations again (as set by Windows).

You can either add it to your ignore list or allow it to be quarantined. There will be no negative affect on your system either way.
