AdwCleaner found this in the registry. Is it safe to remove?

I ran an AdwCleaner scan today just to make sure everything was okay, and it found this in the registy.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{EE171732-BEB4-4576-887D-CB62727F01CA}

Is it safe to remove this? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can safely remove it. The entry seems to be of some keylogger/WildTangent stuff.
