False positives (it's a legitimate VPN extension):

If I remember correctly there's also a false positive for the Hola Unblocker Firefox add-on. However, the Firefox add-on stopped working for me - possibly due to AdwCleaner cleaning away files needed for it to work - and re-installing it doesn't help, so I can't submit a report for that add-on. The add-on can be installed from here if anyone wants to have a look at it:

The following entries are false positives:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\ProgSense (included with some software to look for updates - nothing malicious or deceiving)

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Simple Adblock (adblocker now known as Adblock Plus knowingly installed by user for Internet Explorer)

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Hola (knowingly installed by user)

HKCU\Software\ProgSense (included with some software to look for updates - nothing malicious or deceiving)

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{459DD0F7-0D55-D3DC-67BC-E6BE37E9D762} (belongs to ZoomBrowser EX, a Canon camera utility)

The following are proxy settings knowingly added by user:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyEnable] - 1

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyOverride] - *.local

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyServer] - socks=localhost:1234

Thanks in advance for correcting the issue.
