Is this a weed? Small yellow flowers into brown seed heads.

Can anyone tell me if this is a weed? I've started to clear a border that was neglected for several years and has become invaded by weeds. I'm not sure should it be left in the border or taken out, what do you think? It has small yellow flowers that turn into brown seed heads (there's a flower and a seed head in the centre of the pic but I know the quality is not great, sorry)

My first thought was also cinquefoil (potentilla), maybe creeping cinquefoil?

Hi guys, I think Good Guy is right... Geum Urbanum seems to be the one after checking google images. Would you agree??
