Partner entry

RK found this entry a while ago and I removed it.
However it seems like it came back upon the latest scan.

Registry : 1
[PUP] (X64) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Partner -> Found

What is this entry? I searched the forums and found out that some other people have it too. However there is no definite answer on this

I had it on my previous windows installation too. I reinstalled windows10 recently and it seems like it's still there

Hi nitrousable,

This entry is linked to Partner Links which is considered adware.
The key itself is not harmful.

Regards.

Thanks Curson.

I removed it again but I have a feeling it will come back sooner or later like always.
Interesting how it got there considering RK doesn't detect anything else and MBAM also.

Hi nitrousable,

You are welcome.
We will investigate the source of this registry key. If it is linked to Windows 10, we may whitelist it.

Regards.
