Hi,

I downloaded Malwarebytes because one of the computes in our domain was running very slow.  Malwarebytes detected "pum.hijack.desktop" and when I removed it the computer ran super fast.  The hijack does not seem to have any affact on other workstations however, it's on all the workstations.  I keep using Malwarebytes to remove the hijack but it keeps commig back.  Now pum.hijack.displayproperties is showing up.

How do I completly remove the hijack for the domain.

Thank you in advance.

Could you check if  you have any Group Policy for the Display Settings and any settings related to the Desktop Background (if user can change the wall paper or add any Widgets)

The "PUM" defines a "Potentially Unwanted Modification," so not necessarily harmful to the systems.

I hope that would help.

Yes we do.  And that makes sense.  This started when we locked down the desktop background.

Why did it slow down that one workstation?
