Is this a false positive?

Recommended Posts

I just completed a clean install ( 6-23-10 ) on my compaq running xp and I just finished ALL microsoft and compaq/hp updates and installed avast then installed Malwarebytes I ran avast and it found nothing I then ran Malwarebytes and it found ( 1 ) entry so I removed it and it placed it in quarantine, should I RESTORE it or leave it in quarantine?

This is what it found ( Disabled.SecurityCenter )

Those detections are not actually false\positives or actual infections but rather settings which you have made and in some cases, malware also makes. So we scan those sections of the drive for changes which differ from default settings

Please see the link below for an explanation:
