Hey guys. I've done a full scan with a couple of anti-virus's and my computer comes up clean. Although today I decided to run the online scan provided by a-squared malware. It picked up the following:

Trace.Registry.Ares!A2

While expanding the box it shows me the following two registry values associated with the above mentioned name.

Trace: Value: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3E0FA044-926C-42D9-BA 12-EF 16E980913B}\InprocServer32 --> ThreadingModel
Trace: Value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{3E0FA044-926C-42D9-BA 12-EF 16E980913B}\InprocServer32 --> ThreadingModel



Any expert advice in whether these entries are harmful would be greatly appreciated. If possible, an explanation on exactly what those values are would be very helpful. I want to make sure these are not false positives, seeing as my anti-virus (Eset NOD32) did not pick these up.

What exactly are these registry values?

I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit , is that is any help.
A response ASAP would be very helpful. I worried about the security of my computer
Thank you in advance
