hijack.start menu

Recommended Posts

I downloaded mbam to my wife's computer and the first scan detected hijack.start menu. Kaspersky and SAS did not detect it . I have not taken any action since the infection is in the registry. Do you think it is OK to delete this item without causing any other problems?

She is running vista 32-bit. Her computer seems to be running OK.

I had this same infection last month on my computer in the registry, and deleting it seemed to effect the computer start up (maybe just my imagination).

Your help will be greatly appreciated!
