PUM.Disabled.securitycenter detected in malwarebytes

Malwarebytes just recently detected two malicious files in the registry with this title. Malwarebytes quarantined the files. Should I delete them or notm or would this harm the registry?

Hi Yodaisgreat,

PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter, is either turned off by Malware,

Or your Anti Virus, and McAfee does turn off the firewall and the AntiVirus.

I would say, go ahead with the removal. More often than not, its the malware which disables the security centre. If it were for your Antivirus or McAfe, then you would have still been able to view the Security Centre. The legit software dont disable the Security centre completely.
