Hey guys. I've found a "security.hijack". I'm guessing, it's a false positive, like this one: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=113609 Just to be safe, I would like to hear your opinion on it. Here is my log: In that registry folder, there are two keys: "(Standart)", which seems to be empty, and "Debugger", which contains "C:\Program Files (x86)\TuneUp Utilities 2012\TUAutoReactivator64.exe". - I'm using Tuneup 2012's program deactivator to completely deactivate itunes, as long as I don't need it. - I use Avira Antivirus 2012 premium and it never found anything. - I downloaded itunes (as far as I remember, since I am very careful about what I download and install) directly from apple. So, I have two questions now: 1. Am I right, that this "Security.Highjack" can be ignored? 2. If yes: What if I put it on the ignore-list and after that some malware actually compromises that registry key? Would MBAM ignore that as well? Regards Max
TuneUp Utilities leverages the "Image File Execution Options" debug key to enable termination of long running background processes. Malwarebytes flags these registry entries as problems and quarantines them. Is there any way to have Malwarebytes ignore these keys? At present I have to manually restore them. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\chrome.exe (Security.Hijack) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\firefox.exe (Security.Hijack) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. Thanks, Rob
