    Default False Positive?

    As far as I know, a "0" behind that value hides your Computer throughout your LAN or every LAN. So this could be a Setting made by another Security-Program like any Internet-Protection by Norton or something. If you want to see your machine in your Network, clean this entry; if you want to be invisible, leave it, as it is.
