I had this issue of PUM.Hijack.DisplayProperties and someone advised me to download Malwarebytes AntiMalware and scan it. The issue was found and removed. But I still couldn't change me desktop background. Also loads of folders were set as read only and hidden. Eventually my company support did a complete system format. Now I had to transfer back some of my data. I installed Malwarebytes AntiMalware and guess what. I got the Malware again. I again installed Malwarebytes AntiMalware and removed the malware but not sure if it is really removed. Can someone advise. The log is as follows:
