Hi, all

I did a Google search for Hijack.DisplayProperties which was detected on my first scan. It doesn't seem clear as to

whether this is a false positive or not. I am running Windows 7 official RC 7100 (64 bit) and Malwarebytes 1.38

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.38

Database version: 2346

Windows 6.1.7100

Those findings are not actually false\positives or actual infections but rather settings which you have made and in some cases, malware also makes. So we scan those sections of the drive for changes which differ from default settings

Please see the link below for an explanation:


You can add them to ignore your next scan.
