Advice on 3 items found in scan

4 posts in this topic

Hi. I'm brand new here, and brand new to MBAM. Installed it earlier tonight, did a scan and it found 3 items that it said 3 registry keys were infected . I quarantined them, and would like to find out if it's safe to delete them or are if they are any trouble for my computer. Here is the log:

Like I said, I'm brand new to this, so that'swhy I ask. They seem harmless to me, and see no reason why it would be a problem, but was directed here from Wilders. Thanks in advance!

^^^ Anything in the stats key that does not have an attached CLSID and dll is a long dead trace from malware removed in the past . ^^^


^^^ This looks like a trace as well from malware removed in the past , the CLSID checks out as malware but in this case the dll it connects to is already gone . ^^^

Long story short , MBAM is being thorough but your system is not currently infected :huh:
