    Hi,

    I'm new to NOD32 (trialing the 30 day free version), and since installing, Registry Mechanic is flagging the following key and value for removal:

    High Priority: Value is invalid

    Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Eset\Nod\Current Version\Common (key)
    Quarantine Directory = C:\Program Files\Eset\infected (value)

    It seems that I recall having read a thread a while back addressing this...but I wasn't using NOD32 at that time. Two scans with NOD have apparently indicated that my machine is clean (0 potential threats), but I'm not sure what to do with this entry. Leave it alone (Ignore it)? Remove it, and/or let NOD (if it will) produce another entry that may be recognized as valid?

    Thanks. Any and all help is appreciated.

    It's already a valid registry entry, it's just that there's nothing currently in the folder that it points to.
    Definately leave it alone.
    Another option is to manually add a dummy file to the Qaurantine

    Cheers :)

    Thanks, NOD32 user.

    For now, I have simply added it (key and value) to the "Ignore" feature for Registry Mechanic, so that it will not be flagged in future scans. Thanks for confirming that the entry is, in fact, valid. :thumb:
