Is this malware? Need advice please ...
Sep 10, 2011, 2:03 PM
Wondering if anyone can help me identify a couple of results from a recent scan ( using Malwarebytes ). I scanned my computer last night and the results showed the following two items this morning:
I've quarantined the items, but I wanted to ask for advice before allowing malwarebytes to delete them for two reasons:
1) I'd like to know what these do in the event that they are malware
2) And I'd like to confirm that they are in fact malware since I'd hate to delete a good file by accident and cause system problems
If anyone can shed any light on these guys, I'd be very grateful and thank you in advance.

Those are not files, those are Windows registry entries, but the second seems to open up a website that might be bad.
