Browsers settings keep being revoked

Recommended Posts



Whenever I boot my Home PC, the permissions to access MOZILLA FIREFOX and GOOGLE CHROME are gone.


(I am not sure if some other folders have their permissions revoked ; So far, none that I am aware of)


Since my user is also an administrator, I have to go and re-create/allow access to the folders/sub-folders, and then I can access as nothing had happened.


I ran Malwarebytes, and it detected some infestation.


Since it involved registry, I tried to just quarantine those ; The problem persisted, I removed all of then.


Now, Malwarebytes informs that the PC is clean, however the problem persists.


I ran DDS and HIjackthis - logs attached.


Also, I had a print of the itens that were on QUARENTINE, and then REMOVED.


Also, before all that, I ran CCLEANER on all PC logins, to make sure no TEMP files were responsible for this ;

And before the removals by Malwarebytes, I started getting a error message concerning 'Running Legacy CPL Elevated'.


Thanks for any help.
