Possible false positive in Norton Utilities

On Windows 10 computers, the registry cleaner in NU find this registry key as an error:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.symlink

FriendlyTypeName=@%SystemRoot%\shell32.dll,-4153

Is this a false positive?  Of course shell32.dll is a needed system file, but maybe the resID "-4153" is incorrect?

Thanks for your reply Krusty.  I had a chat with Norton Support this morning and they are going to look into the issue for me.

I've talked to Norton Support and the registry key is a false positive and in time they will release a product update, so that the key is no longer wrongly detected.
