StartMenuLogoff Entry Found in Ignore List

Recommended Posts


I've only used the software once before, and tonight had to update the program. I found the following registry entry in the Ignore List:


I have 'fast user switching' enabled and my switch user/log off menus have been extremely unstable and downright randomly bizarre over the past 6 months and after countless Googles and spy/virus scans I've never found the culprit, just similar stories with easy fixes that didn't apply to me. Up until now, I've never seen anything suspicious regarding the logoff menu until I noticed this mysteriously placed in MalwareBytes' ignore list without my doing so.

I'm assuming I should worry as I did not put it there and no one else on my machine has admin rights. (XP Pro SP2).

There's no legitimate reason this entry should be whitelisted by default, correct?

Let me know if I am right to worry here. Thanks in advance.

Hello bilo,

MBAM does not add anything to it's ignore list automatically. The only way to get an item into the ignore list is to either scan the item then add it to ignore or add it manually.

I do suggest you do upgrade to the latest Service Pack (SP3) for Windows XP.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask. :)

Thank you.
