Hi guys I have come across this registry key which AdwCleaner finds. This is not the first time it has found it.

I removed it with AdwCleaner in 2016 and today I scan and see it has appeared again, but what is it ??

I thought whatever it was, was gone for good but it seems not. Its now back.

The key AdwCleaner finds is this {E7BC34A0-BA86-11CF-84B1-CBC2DA68BF6C}

I don't know if this is a false positive or not ? I searched online about it and there are not good things about this key.

But the key is also related to something in Windows too. So i'm confused on the search results.

I have scanned my system constantly with Malware Bytes too and also Kaspersky internet security.

I do not have any suspicious programs installed, I am a very careful PC user.

here is the log from AdwCleaner:


***** [ Services ] *****

No malicious services found.

***** [ Folders ] *****

No malicious folders found.

***** [ Files ] *****

No malicious files found.

***** [ DLL ] *****

No malicious DLLs found.

***** [ WMI ] *****

No malicious keys found.

***** [ Shortcuts ] *****

No infected shortcut found.

***** [ Scheduled Tasks ] *****

No malicious task found.

***** [ Registry ] *****

Key Found:  HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\TypeLib\{E7BC34A0-BA86-11CF-84B1-CBC2DA68BF6C}

***** [ Web browsers ] *****

No malicious Firefox based browser items found. No malicious Chromium based browser items found.


So any ideas ? is it anything to worry about ?

Re: Registry Key info. What is this ?


It's a remaining of this infection.

Best regards,

Re: Registry Key info. What is this ?

Hmm. But it only finds one key.

I am using windows 7 ultimate x64 too. thats quite an outdated page for the virus

Surely malware bytes premium or kaspersky internet security would have found the rest if my system was infected ?

but the thing is, my current system has never been infected so i'm quite confused about this result in AdwCleaner.

Would you recommend any other steps just to be sure ?

thanks kindly for your reply

Re: Registry Key info. What is this ?


No, nothing to really worry about, it's just an inactive remaining.
