Another False Positive? PUP RunOnce in registry
« on: September 22, 2018, 06:30:19 pm »
Hello, again, one hour later.
I did another Roguekiller scan, in safe mode this time, and it found this:

Registry : 2
[PUP] (X64) HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1239764888-2148109162-3447206424-1001\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce | Application Restart #1 : C:\Windows\System32\msconfig.exe %windir%\system32\msconfig [-] -> Found
[PUP] (X86) HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1239764888-2148109162-3447206424-1001\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce | Application Restart #1 : C:\Windows\System32\msconfig.exe %windir%\system32\msconfig [-] -> Found

Is this false positive please? I uploaded text file. Thanks

Hi Faergor,

These entries are present as RunOnce keys used to modify system startup with MSConfig tool.
You can safely ignore them, but they should be gone on next reboot.

Regards.
