I don't have that problem with Malwarebytes either but some might for what ever reason.
That is why I gave other things one may try.

Because you found this on the internet about someone else computer means absolutely nothing. Every computer is different and different circumstances.

You can find millions of such things on the internet about someone else computer.
We need to make sure you are clean.

Did you run Malwarebytes and have rootkit selected?
If not I would suggest doing so. The scan does take some time.

I would also recommend going into msconfig/Start and Services (non Microsoft services) and see if you have programs that might be scanning or updating on boot.

If you need instructions how to do these things just ask.
We have many members that can give guidance.

Yes, I know how to view the services to view the Startup programs.

I can also view them from WinPatrol that shows me Startup programs and Delayed Start programs and Hidden Files as well as services, etc.

There are some non-MS programs in the list but they do not look suspicious.

I ran Malwarebytes with the rootkit scan and it was clean.

I also ran AVG and and SuperAntiSpyware and the results were clean with them too.

I think something quirky happened that might have been triggered by one of my actions. So, I am betting -- and hoping -- that it is nothing to worry about.

After running all those security scans I agree that your system is clean.
I haven't used WinPatrol in so many years I can't remember what all the program does.

You are happy with your system that's all that counts.
If you have anymore problems we are open 24-7-365
Happy computing.
