hello ive just been reading this forum and it has helped sort of to understand what this actual registry is. and what the people above have been affected i have been too after open a email from postmaster which i did not know was a virus or malware. and after i installed MBAM i got this results Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702 11/6/2010 4:25:09 PM mbam-log-2010-11-06 (16-25-09).txt Scan type: Quick scan Objects scanned: 168099 Time elapsed: 27 minute(s), 32 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 3 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infected: 0 Memory Processes Infected: (No malicious items detected) Memory Modules Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Keys Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Values Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Data Items Infected: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\UpdatesDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. Folders Infected: (No malicious items detected) Files Infected: (No malicious items detected) and i have removed it after i told me to reboot which i did, and after that sometimes the firewall says its not turned on and turns back on again leaving me confused but it hasnt happened that quite recently, also my anti virus is AVG and i didnt seem to find anyone use the same program or have the same effect, because when i start my computer my av (AVG) has a yellow caution sign maybe stating its disables and after a few seconds it immediately turns back on? it does it everytime and its really irritating, also i had a computer tech friend and he says to ignore it because MBAM has already removed it. And please someone can you write a clear message is that registry key anti virus disable and firewall etc is a virus or something should i be concerned? and its funny because my computer works fine? apart from the fact my Anti virus (AVG) has a caution sign then disappears.. ANYONE WHO HAS READ THIS PLEASE PLEASE REPLY ASAP! D; In need of assistance THANK YOU!
