Closed Is this malware? Need advice please ... Tags: Security Apps Last response: September 24, 2011 8:21 PM in Applications Share lyphe September 10, 2011 2:03:38 PM Hi guys, Wondering if anyone can help me identify a couple of results from a recent scan ( using Malwarebytes ). I scanned my computer last night and the results showed the following two items this morning: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Associations\bak_Application HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Associations\application\http://www.helpmeopen.com/?n=app&ext=%s\http://shell.windows.com/fileassoc/%04x/xml/redir.asp?E... I've quarantined the items, but I wanted to ask for advice before allowing malwarebytes to delete them for two reasons: 1) I'd like to know what these do in the event that they are malware 2) And I'd like to confirm that they are in fact malware since I'd hate to delete a good file by accident and cause system problems If anyone can shed any light on these guys, I'd be very grateful and thank you in advance.
