Hi There.

No, it's not a false positive. It's an old registry key that was left over from a previous malware infection. MBAM tends to go the extra mile and really remove all traces of the malware, Other applications don't always strive for that. Some tend to leave behind harmless registry keys, which is what this is.

Cheers Raid and thank you for such a speedy reply. Seeing as that is the case I will delete it from Quarantine. ;)
