  1. Hi,
    I ran Malwarebytes as recommended by my webmaster because a few files online were infected with a virus and he thought that maybe my laptop might be as well. It found only one thing - PUM.Hijack.StartMenu in HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced|Start_ShowMyComputer (PUM.Hijack.StartMenu) -> Bad: (0) Good: (1)
    When I Right-click and select "Jump to location" it goes to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Explorer.AssocProtocol.search-ms
    I've just spent 2 hours online trying to understand the forum discussions here and elsewhere to see if they could help me and I feel a little scared by all this, to be honest:
    What is PUM.Hijack.StartMenu?
    Does it actually do any harm as such? - My laptop runs OK - not great but OK.
    If it is harmful, please could someone GENTLY talk me through removing/repairing it? (I guess I can't just remove the infected registry entry ... or can I? - that's the only option Malwarebytes presents me with - there's no "Repair" option).
    Thank you and please be gentle - I'm new to all this.
    Johnny

    Thanks Broni - I will do what you say (I'll be good!),
    Can I use the computer between or during scans or is this the only thing I can do with it while the repair is going on (that might be a stupid question but it's a genuine one).
    Also, any idea how long this should take - this is my working laptop so should I set aside a day or two to do this or a couple of hours (a full scan of Malwarebytes took 90 minutes)?
    (Also, do you know how comes my posting is full of text hyperlink ads? - I didn't put them there).

    I decided to run the scan anyway.
    It came up clean after the removal / restart process.
    Do I still need to run DDS?

    Well, I thought it was all OK. The laptop booted once fine and I thought "That's it, it's cured!"
    However, on the next reboot, I logged onto windows fine but every time I rolled the cursor over the quickstart icons, it showed the timer circle. None of the buttons responded. After an hour, I pressed and held the power button until the machine shut down and tried again. This time, when I logged onto Windows, the screen was black with only the cursor showing.
    I tried the same hard shutdown again and restarted.
    Currently, Windows starts in Safe mode but not properly in normal mode.
    I can't download the software you suggest because I can't get onto the Internet in safe mode.
    The alerts box tells me to start (I can't remember waht it's called) I think it's called ComputerSecure or ComputerSafe. when I try, it says it can't start.
    I'm writing this on a borrowed machine.
    What can I do?

    Sorry - that security thing that won't open is Windows Security Center service. The alert icon says I should turn it on but then I get a pop-up saying the Windows Security Center service can't be started.

    The security center problem is only there when I start up in safety mode.
    Every now and then, the machine boots normally and Windows starts normally but that is 1 restart in 5.
    If this fails to be fixed - would reinstalling Windows 7 sort out all thesse problems?

    Did the above happen after running one of my tools or were you trying to do something by yourself?

    You were VERY clear - "Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest." so I didn't: I ran MalwareBytes and DDS only. Then I posted the logs, sent you that nice thank you message and shut down again. I have not been able to run anything else because Windows would not open properly after that shut down.
    However, after starting in Safe Mode a couple of times, I tried opening Windows normally and it opened OK but when I shut down, it automatically ran Windows Backup. After that Windows backup, Windows seems to be running OK. I don't really want to run the other tools because I'm nervous I'll lose another couple of days of this laptop. Do you think I REALLY need to?

    As a matter of fact I do because we barely ran anything so I have no idea what's going on there.
