  1. Recently, I joined my computer to my employer's domain. As a result of doing so, a Group Policy Option has changed the style of the control panel to the classic style (which I prefer anyway). However, MalwareBytes flags this as a malware which needs to be quarantined. Is there any way I can prevent MalwareBytes from flagging this registry change as an indication of malware?
  2. No matter what I change my sleep settings to--screen off after 15 minutes, sleep after 20, etc., eventually they both get changed back to "Never". You can set them, click around in the control panel, then come back and see they changed. I've run several virus scans (Malwarebytes, Eset online, Bitdefender) and got nothing. I don't know if this is connected, but when I open the sleep settings from the "charm" menu on the right, once I've changed the settings I can't close the settings. I can close the window, it's gone from the task bar, but it shows up in file manager. This has been going on for a week or two, then today it started changing the power options from whatever I've set them to (high performance, custom, etc.) to "balanced." I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. Any ideas? I've posted in a couple of other forums and no one has even replied. I know it's off-topic, but I'm hoping the MBAM community can help. Thanks.
  3. I'm facing a lot of issues with my desktop. Please help me out. I do not know how it happened. Searching through various forums and the Malwarebyes forum itself, I've concluded (not sure though) its a problem of this 'Hijack.' virus thing. Before that here are some of the problems I'm having now. BEFORE using "Last know Good Configuration" from the Advanced boot options. 1. The control panel is not working I'm able to open it. But the only thing that appears is a blank window (with none of the options in control panel); and the window gets stuck or unresponsive. May be due to a corrupt cpl file (after referring the net. but not sure on what that is) 2. Services like regedit, anti-virus softwares, etc. cannot be opened in normal mode I suspect it has to be a virus, that disables such services. But I did a scan using Avast in safe mode and didnt find any virus. 3. Lost Admin privileges, though I'm using the admin user account I tried to install the BitDefender antivirus initially after all these problems occurred. But the installation could not be completed as it pointed out that I did not have admin privileges. 4. Theme set to classic windows theme automatically. Unable to use Personalize option My windows 7 theme has been reset to a classic window theme, and I'm not able to alter it. AFTER using "Last know Good Configuration" from the Advanced boot options. My system gets stuck in "Normal Mode". I'm able to use "Safe Mode" only. 1. The control panel is not working Still not able to access it even in safe mode. 2. Services like regedit, anti-virus softwares, etc. cannot be opened in normal mode Unable to open. But works in safe mode. 3. Theme restored to aero style in normal mode The theme has been restored. But whats the point if the whole system hangs OK. Here's the log of the scan I did with Malwarebytes.

  4. Hi i think my computer maybe infected as nothing on it seems to not function. I can no longer access my control panel and cannot connect to the internet or install devices such as usb, printer, hardrive or anything. In this case i cannot follow the recomended steps from the 'Im infected what do i do now?' page because i cannot do anything on the computer. The following message is displayed "The specified service does not exist as an installed service".
