The reason these "FP's" as you call them are detected and modified is meant to be as a service to a user whose settings have (at least potentially) been modified by malware, although I do agree that the implementation at least could be better. Perhaps instead of a detection in a normal scan, these could be part of a special section of "fixes" within MBAM that say things like "restore Help item to Start Menu" or something similar, or at least identify the detections in the scans a bit more descriptively so they aren't percieved by users as actual threats, simply as modified settings that are often changed by malware, and perhaps with a message along the lines of "if you made these changes yourself please ignore this detection." And maybe even going as far as not having these items marked for removal by default, instead maybe show that they were detected, but force the user to check a box next to them to remove them so hopefully they'll read what they are.
