Sorry for the double posting. I meant to add my name to the previous two posters. Same story -- infected registry key right after updating.

Is this a false positive?

Hello donnod and welcome to Malwarebytes :rolleyes:

No, do not delete it. Simply update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and perform another scan. It should no longer be detected.

The thing is that I did. What now?

To donnod and anyone can need: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{8ecc055d-047f-11d1-a537-0000f8753ed1} Is a important registry key. Open Mbam, go to quarantine select it and restored it. And excuse me for my english.

I had the same situation. All I had to do to restore it was create a reg file for that reg key on another Windows 7 machine, transferred the created reg file to the computer that needs the key restored, and ran the reg file. Replaced the key - no problem.

I tried to upload the reg file here so other peeps could use it but, Mbam site will not allow upload of reg files. :) If you know how to do what I just explained here, it works great.
