Windows 7: Hijack.Display Properties

14 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64(desktop), Windows 7 Professional x86(laptop)
Hijack.Display Properties

I have just run MalwareBytes for the first time, and it came up with one warning, Hijack.DisplayProperties (screenshot below).
I wanted to check what it meant before blindly removing it. After some searches, the only information I could find was that it was somehow related to 64-bit Windows Vista.
Is this correct, and/or is it anything to worry about. The PC is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

It's nothing to worry about. Just a simple registry edit from a 1 to a zero, you can go ahead and change it yourself from the specified reg key manually, or let mbam do it by "remove it". Just a false positive with mbam.
