This is my first post here, and I hope it's in the right place.
I run WinXP Home SP2. I started using SAS free 188.8.131.522 last week at someone else's suggestion. I've kept everything updated.
I already run Ad-Aware, Spybot, Spyware Terminator, MalwareBytes, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Guard, PC Tools Anti-Virus and Zone Alarm.
Beginning with my first scan, SAS has identified the following registry items as threats:
I've spent hours searching the Internet -- including SAS forums -- for more info on these entries. I've been unable to find anything that identifies them as harmful.
In fact, I've seen many SAS logs containing these entries posted in other tech forums. The logs have either been pronounced clean or, when other malware has been present, the entries haven't been addressed as threats.
None of my other anti-spyware/anti-virus programs has identified any of these entries. Further, I've done a registry search via regedit, and the entries haven't even been found.
As a result, I don't have sufficient info to make a decision about what to do. I'm very cautious about tampering with the registry, so up until now I've left them alone.
Could these be false positives? If so, can someone tell me what they represent and what purpose they serve? If not, is it safe to get rid of them? Thanks!
