  1. I also encountered this shortly after you posted your message... My Microsoft Security Essentials/Windows Defender indicated that Ransom:Win32/Nemreq.A was detected in a2hooks64.dll. As I am typing my current message, another notification from Microsoft Security Essentials came up and displayed the same message (as described by RSLCS) with a different directory: C:\ProgramData\Emsisoft\Updates\a2hooks64.dll And, Microsoft Security Essentials just kept popping up the same message after some minutes again and again... Someone please kindly advise! BTW, I am running Windows 7 64-bit and have both Emsisoft Internet Security and Microsoft Security Essentials active.
  2. Thank you for your reply and answers therein! Now that I know what those entries are, I am going to delete them.
  3. Not sure if it is appropriate to post my questions here... Anyway, my Emsisoft Anti-Malware is working just fine. Recently, I ran a complete scan and two items were detected: Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSESS\PROTECTOR_DLL.PROTECTORBHO.1 Detected: Application.AdReg (A) Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSESS\PROTECTOR_DLL.PROTECTORBHO Detected: Application.AdReg (A) Both items were marked as "no risk." At present, I put those two items under quarantine. I am curious about what those two keys are for. If I delete them, will I compromise the integrity of my Windows 7 (64-bit)? Moreover, what is Application.AdReg (A)? If it is a malware or virus, why is it marked as "no risk" by Emsisoft Anti-Malware? Any light on my queries is much appreciated!
