Should I delete this infection?Malwarebytes

Specs: Windows 7
I ran MalwareBytes and it picked up this "infection." I'm not sure if I should delete it though. I'm concerned it is something I need to keep and its a false positive. I also have Avira and it didn't pick this up. Thank You!! Here's the report:

As a general rule, if Malwarebytes thinks it's a nasty then just remove it, especially if it's only a registry entry. If it's legitimate then it will sort itself out, if it isn't then you are well rid of it.
