A new thing happened just today on start up. I get this message:

"Select your Security Center

McAfeeSecurity Center is currently installed.

McAfee Strongly recommends that you click "yes" to select McAfeeSecurityCenter. If you click "No," McAfeeSecurityCenter and Windows Security Center will be enabled, which might result in duplicate security status messaging."

I click "Yes," and Security Center starts and shows as running.

I did not change any options in how McAfee should start and it still shows me that it is to start on start up.

I thought this was odd so I ran an Ad-Aware check and it found nothing. I ran a Spybot check and it found two entries:

Security Risks: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify!=dword:0

Security Risks: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify!=dword:0

I click on "Fix Selected Problems," and run Spybot again and it does not show any entries. But, if I log off of Windows or restart and run Spybot, it shows the same entries.

This is the Hijack this Log before spybot was ran and "Fix selected problems" was chosen:

Hello rankpete and welcome to the BC malware forum. The messages that you see are normal windows messages. Products like McAfee and Symantec have their own versions of Security Center and want you to either run one or the other.

The 2 registry keys are normal for Windows. What they are saying is that MS's Security Center will warn you when it thinks you do not have an anti-virus or a firewall. If you do not want MS's Security Center to warn you then you can turn those options off in MS's Security Center options.

What is shown regarding Spybot is normal also. It is telling you what versions/dates of its database files it is using. You should see these values.

As for the log, it looks pretty clean but there are a couple of search settings that can be cleaned if you want to. They are included with Dell computers to make you use the search engines that they want you to. We normally remove them but the choice is yours. To remove them you can do the following.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://bfc.myway.com/search/de_srchlft.html
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {4D25F926-B9FE-4682-BF72-8AB8210D6D75} - C:\Program Files\MyWaySA\SrchAsDe\1.bin\deSrcAs.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4D25F921-B9FE-4682-BF72-8AB8210D6D75} - C:\Program Files\MyWaySA\SrchAsDe\1.bin\deSrcAs.dll

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Other than that, you are good to go.
