Hello,

Recently I had an 'UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME' error and fixed the problem yesterday by reformatting my hard disc. Since then, I've installed Malewarebytes' Antimaleware program and ran a full scan today and two items were detected.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65.0.1400
www.malwarebytes.org

Database version: v2012.10.16.15

Windows XP Service Pack 2 x86 NTFS
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180

Hello, this can be caused by changes to settings made by your security program (PUM = Potentially Unwanted Modification).
You reinstalled.

Remove those threats ,update and rescan to be sure.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image
      icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
