Today I ran an Adwcleaner Scan and the following was detected.
Adware.Agent HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules|WMI-ASYNC-In-TCP
Adware.Agent HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules|WMI-ASYNC-In-TCP-NoScope
Not sure if it's false positive.
Please assist.

You are not the only one who recently is asking about those two items. Here is a link to

a Malwarebytes forum where other users are asking the same as you.

These items are removed by adwcleaer. What are they - Malwarebytes AdwCleaner - Malwarebytes Forums


One interesting post there makes me think that those items are false positives.

QUOTE: I have restored this two items from quarantaine and did an new scan and now adwcleaner found nothing.
