I bought a pc vista yesterday.
I ran malewarebytes right away. It said a file was infected. A registry file ending with highjack proprieties. I read on a forum it was to be ignored. I clicked on ignore.

I opened malewarebytes today and clicked on the exclusion tab
It reads:
hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorerBad (1) Good (0)

I did not put any file in the exclusions.
Do I have a virus doing things already?

thank you
