Mine were on W7, and PUP's. Just wondered if these were found with new version that were not found with the old ones, which is set to run daily, automatically.

Any other users of Malawarebytres - new version - found these Hijack. SecurityRun threats?


Could these, I wonder, be false positives ?

I could not find HKLM in registry editor. Windows explorer found a reference in the Malawarebytes manual (which I did not realise I had) to rootkit. I have no Idea where "HKLM" actually is...

It's HKEYLOCALMACHINE. Not updated MBM on win 8 machine yet.

Checked for update but still on the version.

Thanks, found it. Cannot see anything to worry about, but will not delete the quarantined 8 items yet.

On W7 64 but the new version was offered automatically and has a slightly different dashboard with a large blue "Scan Now" box at the bottom, even though mine is set to auto scan daily.

It's a software restriction policy. It basically blocks something from running. The GUID (long string of letters and numbers enclosed in curly brackets) is the pointer to the thing that's been blocked. To find the "friendly name" of it, search the entire Registry for that GUID.
