    Malewarebytes says egui.exe & ekrnl.exe are security.hijack

    My @msn.com email got haxed a week or two ago when I accidently clicked a link in email. DAMN TAP TO CLICK LAPTOP MOUSEPAD!! I HATE IT!!

    Eset detected the issue at that time so I thought I was safe...but obviously whatever skript it runs...ran (I believe) on the mail server. This morning it dumped an email link to every email address in the address book and even address from email in every folder like my archive folder and stuff.

    I do not believe the virus is on my computer as eset and all the anti-spyware progs are coming up clean. However Malwarebytes flaggs egui.exe and ekrnl.exe as "security.hijack". Anyone know why malwarebytes is calling ESET NOD32 security risks?

    Probably the same reason Spybot was calling "Windows" a virus for me. ^^
