You can follow the directions below and someone will assist you with running scans on your system to see if they can detect anything.

Please print out, read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

After posting your new post make sure under options that you select Track this topic and choose one of the Email options so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org

For this I just read a thread about StartMenu Logoff.

This is just a registry setting that says if you want to show the logoff on the Start Menu. If it keeps coming back it's probably being restored by some other product such as an Anti-Virus suite or tools like Spybot's Tea Timer that monitors registry changes and puts them back or prevents them.

You can safely add this to your ignored items in the program if you like or review your other security programs to determine which one is stopping the change or is putting it back.
