Hi guys,

The past few times I ran ad-aware se, the following problems were detected:

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

I then came here and downloaded the version of ad-aware se that was provided through a link in the "do this first" topic. A re-scan with this version came up clean. I checked the locations above in the registry and found an entry called "start uploading ... smsss.exe." Some other sources have this listed as a safety hazard, but I was unsure of what to do since the entries no longer show up in ad-aware.

Is this something that needs to be fixed, or has the problem been quarantined already?

Thanks!
