That doesn't sound good, run housecall.trendmicro.com


If its nothing its nothing, if its something housecall should be able to remove it, if its REALLY bad then repairing it could cause your system to need to be restored, but afaik housecall will not take any steps that would bork your computer, even if your computer is already pretty well borked.

Usually happens after windows update?
There was a security patch released earlier this week, so if you have auto updates for windows, then likely you're seeing the 'change' made by the patch, or made by previous updates (depends how often you update/scan etc).

Edit: Which anti virus software do you run?

Hehe that happens to be the main one that reports those changes after a windows update in that way. I'd agree with Jeng just run tend housecall, or another decent antivirus scan, as long as that comes back clean the most likely thing is it was only a windows update.
