Windows 7: Security center error

Security center error

Hi, I keep getting errors in the event log under security center as source, that inform me,

"The Windows Security Center detected a third party product with a non-guid instanceId. InstanceID={ED588FAF-1B8F-43B4-ACA8-8E3C8-8E3C85D."

Is this anything to be concerned about, it has happened 96 times in the last 7 days.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for the reply Kaktussoft, I have opened regedit and am using "find" under the edit tab, but am only getting a popup telling me "Finished searching through the registry". I cant seem to see any actual results, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Again thank you for the help.

in regedit browse to the top and click on "computer". So it starts at top when searching something.
Press CTRL-F, check first 3 checkboxes, and NOT the last one! Enter as search term:
ED588FAF-1B8F-43B4-ACA8-8E3C8-8E3C85D
now "find next"

Yes, uninstalled Spybot and Avast, I am using Comodo atm. No new errors as yet, will mark as solved if all stays good over the next few days.

As always thank you very much for your help.
