False positive


Recommended Posts

Just updated to the new MBAM 1.25 ran a quick scan and was warned of a Registry Data item being infected, which turns out to be a FP.

I have run scans with another Malware program (a-squared) I have and it came up with nothing, my HiJackthis logs show nothing as well and my Anti-Virus (avast) comes up blank as well.

Multiple infections as well as multiple security applications lock the home page and this is what is going on here , we are unlocking your home page .

I have no way to tell if this was done by malware or by a user so I opt to help the noobs that would otherwise get stuck with a malware home page they would not have the option to fix .

If you did this intentionally (or your security software did) please whitelist this detection .
