WinPatrol just detected a change in the association for REG files. It changed from regedit.exe %1 to regedit.exe %1 %*. I not sure what this means but I did have a run in with Antivirus 2009 this morning, I don't think I was infected and am running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware right now. What does this mean, a virus/malware has taken over the regedit.exe?
