Windows 7: Can't delete reg trojan.agent (Malwarebytes)

Can't delete reg trojan.agent (Malwarebytes)

Hello,
I ran a full system scan with malwarebytes and found this:

Registry Keys Detected: 1
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (Trojan.Agent) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

malwarebytes then prompted me to restart my computer, so I did.

I ran the scan after restart and found it again. Could someone help me remove this please? or tell me it's just a fail alarm?

thanks,

Update Malwarebytes definitions. It is a false positive from a bad definition update. (v2012.6.14.01)
