Superantispyware detected Rogue.Pallidium

January 5, 2011 at 05:06:33
Specs: Windows XP
I was running a scan using my superantispyware free edition, and during the scan I noticed it detected something called Rogue.Palidium in the registry:

Rogue.Pallidium

HKU\S-1-5-21-2420912567-2568423099-2173285385-1006\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS#WARN ON POST REDIRECT


I have tried to do a search about this but cannot find out what it really is. This is the first time this program has found anything in the registry and I am concerned. Can anyone please help me and tell me what is going on? Thanks.

I have a Dell computer running windows xp service pack 3.

Same here just this morning. Scanning now and it has just popped up on the scan results. I have the same questions as you. Hopefully someone will have more info. A search result was less than informative.

There seems to be quite a lot about Rogue.Palidium in Google. Apparently it is another of those bogus anti-virus things.

Have you tried downloading, installing, updating and running Malwarebytes freebie? It is good at removing those and would be the best place to start.

Hi Derek,
Thank you for your reply and help. I downloaded Malwarebytes and did a scan in safe mode and also ran a scan with my SuperAntispyware in safe mode. Both scans came out clean, which was good. Hopefully this new issue won't continue to be an annoyance.
Again, thanks for your help.
Peace
