You'll find several occurrence of NeverShowExt string in Registry but delete the string only for desired keys. news

Click on the Explorer folder and you should see a registry key called "link" in the right-hand pane. However, the solution is still here! Removing the program stopped my Windows Defender from complaining.

I've spent the last 45 minutes looking for a solution to this problem. Happy Christmas!! I can only find 3 of the 4 ink files and now this shit annoys me every couple of seconds. Aibek Bama Boy_43 January 5, 2011 at 7:28 am Used the download link for Windows 7 and it worked just like you said.

In my case the workaround did not help. This is especially true for things like your operating system, security software and Web browser, but also holds true for just about any program that you frequently use. It'd be interesting to see when MS releases an updated definitions file to fix this. Seems to me, though, that for all the scans people have done, if ONLY Windows Defender is claiming a virus in visually-inspected links and not one other scan is agreeing with

It might be that a grayware program is installed on your PC that is constantly changing your shortcut back.

It's odd that VulkanRT specifically is common for most of the other nearly identical reports here. Seems like it is a false positive. I reported several issues with 10.0.0 which have not been fixed in subsequent 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 releases. If the answers given in this thread are not helpful, I recommend you to submit a new question.

So I took your steps and just deleted them manually. Adobe Reader (Acrobat) 10.0 for example, and Glary Utilites, GPBBabel, GPSDump, FlyChart, SeeYou, Microsoft Security Essentials, Sticky Notes, but not SmartFTP.

I am a novice in computer but willing to learn. HitmanPro will now begin to scan your computer for malware. Started having this today, scanned PC with Kaspersky Pure 3.0 and MBAM as MBAE was running alongside. glad it worked.

Thank you, thank you! shortcut file without editing the registry? That's simply not an accurate statement. THAT REALLT HELPED!!!!!!:D:D:D:D:D Ed March 10, 2011 at 4:20 pm Aibek,thanks.

The retarded warning is still there! MalwareBytes came up clean. If it's not on Windows Update yet*, then you can download the latest definitions from Microsoft's support page in the link below. If you design or administer Windows NT/2000 networks, this is an essential resource to help you implement system scripting across your network.

permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply[–]covertPixel 1 point2 points3 points 2 months ago(0 children)Thanks!! Viruses, backdoors, keyloggers, spyware ,adware, rootkits, and trojans are just a few examples of what is considered malware. thanks for the info. None of this would be an issue if Windows 7 team hadn't killed off quick launch.

HELP! i almost cry here thinking and searching for the solution. Since you are unlikely to receive a response within this comment thread, I recommend you to ask a new question. I have unistalled the Compatibility Pack but it doesn't work.
