    Windows XP SP3, NOD 32 3.0.695.0

    I recently noticed a log entry that has concerned me because it appears to have originated from within Windows itself I would appreciate some guidance on how it may have occured, how serious it is and what I should do I wondered also whether it may be related to my modifiing my router to enable uPnp and installing Serviio Media Player as a Windows Service

    Many thanks

    Potentially unwanted / unsafe applications are not malware in any way.

    For a definition of potentially unwanted applications, refer to this KB article.

    It's up to you if you enable the detection or not.
