Bazooka detected systemDir.Explorer and systemDir.Regedit - what does this mean?

Post by spaghettimagic on 2nd December 2012, 7:42 pm

Hi,

I was just wondering if someone could give me some advice, as I'm not particularly computer literate.
I recently installed the Bazooka spyware detection system and it said it detected systemDir.Explorer and SystemDir.Regedit. Can you tell me if this is a false positive and these are legitimate files (that I shouldn't delete) or are these viruses or spyware or something. Malwarebytes said my computer was clean and it seems to be running okay. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

Bazooka is super outdated tool (and very inadequate on Windows 7), it would be much better to use something a bit more worth it...

like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Pro.
