This must be something that Dell installed as my other Vista x64 box did not get this.

Windows Vista SP1 x64 on Dell Studio XPS 16 (good computer I must say).

BTW - McAfee AV finds nothing... I'm still to test with Kaspersky Online Scanner.

All this indicates is that the ability to make changes to active desktop is disabled and MBAM is attempting to enable it . If you don't want to see this again tell MBAM to ignore the scan result .
