I have ran 2 full deep scans Kasp pure 3.0 and I have not seen what looks like registry items or trees in the report of the scan. A few days ago a did a full deep scan with max settings.I ask live tech support does kasp scan registry I was told to add the registry file to scan scope lol mm I think you have to get into reg by CMD but I'am no pro. The first scan came clean. After running Kasp I then ran emsisoft smart scan found two items low or no risk but still found one in registry Key: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3562058457-2184505213-2745612196-1005\SOFTWARE\SOFTONIC and the other C:\ProgramData\partner     detected: Application.AppInstall (A). I ran a full scan with both today Kasp and Emsisoft both scan clean. I also been told on the other hand kasperskey only scan registry only in deep scan mode. I don't know what to believe. I do like Kasp. I wonder if there's  setting I need to do or change.

The detection is not an infection in the typical sense...but is more accurately classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) {related to a registry key) which does not fall in the same category as malicious files such as viruses, Trojans, worms, rootkits and bots. A PUP is a very broad threat category which can encompass any number of different programs to include those which are benign as well as problematic.

Some Anti-virus/Anti-Malware programs and security scanners have options to include or exclude the detection of PUPs because of how they are defined. If your security tools are not finding any PUPs, then most likely the settings have been set to exclude or ignore those detections so they need to be enabled.

In Kaspersky go to Settings > Additional > Threats and exclusions > Settings and check all the categories under PUPs.
