Spyboy scan finding

Hi all.

Having just done a scan, Spybot has thrown up the following:

Command Service (3 entries)

Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\mchlnjDrv

Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\mchlnjDrv

Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\mchlnjDrv

I know its advised to delete anything "in red", but as they are registry entries can anyone tell me if they are definitely safe to delete or could they be a false positive?

I would rather ask to be safe than sorry!

Thanks for any advice.

This does appear to be malware or at least a risk from what I can find out. e.g. click here

Backup the registry first click here then let Spybot delete them.
