(Hijack.StartMenu)

Recommended Posts

This infection pops up if you uncheck help and support in the start menu>properties>advanced. I checked it and then reran the scan and it didn't get detected. I'm don't think I've ever seen a virus that disables this setting. :) Probably best to ignore it.

Yes, it's safe to add that one to your ignore list. Sometimes malware disables the help and support menu, but of course sometimes users (like myself and yourself) do so as well.

I also get this, but I don't have help and support disabled on the start menu. In my case, it's having "display logoff" checked on the start menu.

If I choose to delete it after a can, the logoff entry disappears from my start menu.

No big deal, I just ignore it now.

Found this as well. Of note: I was recovering from a rootkit virus. Did a full install from restore disks of my HP Pavillion laptop. My IT guys are concerned that the rootkit might have survived the reformat, or that the HP Restore disks dont' acutally do the repartition, so they had me run malwarebytes again.

Got the startmenulogoff falsepositive.

Literally, install XP to a reformatted hard disk from HP restore disks, install malwarebytes, run, falsepositive. Logfile uploaded.

It's not a false positive. If you set it or an application did, add it to ignore and it will never should up again.
