[RESOLVED] Malwarebytes detect 2 PUP.Dealio... ?
« on: January 04, 2011, 07:40:25 PM »
Hi guys and girls i dont know if im in the right section so please dont jump on me if im not.

I did a scan of Malwarebytes and this come to the result.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{01398B87-61AF-4FFB-9AB5-1A1C5FB39A9C} (PUP.Dealio) -> No action taken.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{E312764E-7706-43F1-8DAB-FCDD2B1E416D} (PUP.Dealio) -> No action taken.

So is it a false positive ? Can anyone help me ?

I used to got BigSeek Toolbar Pro because of my recorder which i dont have anymore. And its was having Search Settings so is it because of that ?

If yes then i did remove the two things so im safe to delete this things or no ?

Thank pondus for your so fast respond !!!!!!!!

But if in the past i did uninstall BigSeek Toolbar Pro or Dealio with Search Settings which might have somewhat related to the source can i remove it without harm ? Also if its remain on my toolbar as left click and i did desactivate it on IE8 its wont cause harm also ?

There is no rush do delete anything from quarantine, it can not harm your computer when in quarantine.
I always wait 30 days before i delete.......but thats me

Well 30 days lol.

Humm ok... Well i will maybe give 1 day or 5 just to see how my internet work and if all is fine then i shouldnt worry. Anyway a regkey can recreate its self if its in use or somewhat but i dont got that toolbar so im safe.

PS : Thank you for help me Pondus im very glad that you did. I hope i did not post in a wrong forum because i trust alot the ppl here so if anything come suspicious to me you guys/girls are good 4 it. Also many use Malwarebytes so i dont have to scare.

Me I'm in the FP camp (have said as much on the topic above) as that also turned up in my scan, yet there is not a single other trace/piece of evidence of a Dealio associated cr**ware on my system, toolbar, files, registry keys, etc. just this:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{E312764E-7706-43F1-8DAB-FCDD2B1E416D} (PUP.Dealio)

I don't use IE and hate toolbars with a vengeance and always on the lookout for this kind of cr**ware.

Well i bet its as my recorder Hypercam 2 that did put this and i removed it long time ago when he did do this and full updates its was become annoying as hell.

So yeah i hate that toolbar but not my google toolbar its good and nice its aint like any others toolbars.

Now i can say there no such toolbar of dealio on my system omg hell yeah ! David if you got that .... then i suggest you remove it if you dont have it because its pretty useless if you stay this on the system.

I won't even have the google toolbar for me one toolbar is one too many ;D

MBAM really has form for detecting things in registry when there are zero associated indications of there ever being any infections on the system. I haven't had an infection on my system in almost 7 years, but I have had a few FPs in MBAM since I have used it.

This system which is two years old has never been better protected so how this supposedly infected registry key miraculously turns up is beyond me. A registry key like this in isolation is inert and no risk even if it were a PUP.

Maybe you should do a FP post in MBAM forum ?
