Any idea what are these and where did they come from? Latest version RogueKiller detected those.


wpad is supposedly some sort of an auto proxy detection tool in Windows. I've looked up the timestamps for these entries and found out that one of them was created yesterday at the time when I launched my torrenting program. Are these entries dangerous or not?
Thanks

Hi nitrousable,

These entries are false positives.
This will be fixed in RogueKiller next release.

Regards.
