    Strange Software in Registry


    I noticed a strange software name in the registry, does this appear safe?

    I did some research on it, couldn't really find anything concrete, some possibilities suggesting perhaps a rootkit. In addition to Malwarebytes, try running the following tools to see if they turn up anything:

    TDSSKiller Download

    AdwCleaner Download

    If they turn up clean, just keep an eye on your systems behavior.

    I ran TDSS and Malwarebytes anti-rootkit and found nothing, I'll run the other one also just to be sure

    Also my system seems to be acting normal haven't noticed anything strange besides that in the registry
