Hi there,

The two detections by EEK are policies that, if set to 1 will disable your ability to access Task Manager and Registry Editor. These are not created by Windows and can be exploited by malware, so EEK detects them as threats.

You can choose to delete, quarantine them or leave them alone. It won't hurt either way.
