Registry Data Items infected

Recommended Posts

Registry Data Items Infected:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\scrfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: (NOTEPAD.EXE %1) Good: ("%1" /S) -> No action taken.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: (NOTEPAD.EXE %1) Good: (regedit.exe "%1") -> No action taken.

I did a security check that was suggested to someone else early, however there was no dialog or follow up regarding the problem. Is this a significant problem for the computer. It is sluggish and some items will not work, especially the automatic updates.

Hi, MarloweV07:

Please have a look here at the FAQ - Section #18 for an explanation.

ISSUE: I keep getting the following detections, even after allowing Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to fix them:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\scrfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: (NOTEPAD.EXE %1) Good: ("%1" /S)

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: (NOTEPAD.EXE %1) Good: (regedit.exe "%1")

SOLUTION: Most often when these two items return repeatedly it is due to the presence of an IOLO product such as System Mechanic. System Mechanic and other IOLO security products alter these settings from their Windows defaults. If you do have an IOLO product installed, it is best to simply change the security setting in your IOLO product so that it does not change the settings for .reg files and .scr files or that you simply have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ignore these particular detections. These entries are not actual infections, just system settings changes that are not set to their defaults, which is something that some infections will do to prevent .reg files and .scr files from executing, which is why Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware detects these items, since it has no way of knowing if the change was made by the user, an infection, or a legitimate software such as IOLO.

Please let us know if this resolves your issue.
