Coming from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576608/100-hdd-usage-at-startup-wow64dll-roguekiller-false-alarm/


I've been really stressed after not being able to remove 6 registries...they come detected as "Hj.known.dll" and every time I try to remove them it comes up with "Error [5]", which I read online means "ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED"?...I'm on a windows 8.1, and have tried booting in safe mode, ran RogueKiller, and still the same exact error. If you need any more information, just ask, I appreciate ANY help!!! Thank you so much for your time!

I've also scanned my computer with MalwareBytes, and it came up with nothing.

Requesting thread closure. Got an answer saying it was just a false possitive, which would be fixed upon the next update.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
