Obsolete software key Emsisoft

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Why does Ccleaner find an empty registry key every time I start the system? I understand that this can be added to the exceptions ... ^_^

But why this key is formed every time again and why is it empty?:huh:

Can you explain?

The short answer is "because register cleaners, no matter who makes them, are bad/dangerous".

I think it's just detecting that there are no subkeys and/or values associated with that registry key, but you'll have to ask Piriform/Avast to be certain. I would believe that EAM will recreate it if CCleaner deletes it, since it can be used under certain circumstances.

I get similar "detection". Funny thing is that it also finds obsolete key for their own software: HKLM\Software\Piriform  :)

Almost certainly a generic detection rule then. ;)
