    How do I delete mountpoints2 permanently on win10


    When I switched on the pc and attempted to open a folder by double clicking, It opened by single clicking and carried on opening continuosly. I then googlee for the cause of folder opening up constantly then I found that mount points shoul'd be deleted using regedit. So I deleted it then when I switch off the pc and switch it onn again. The issue comes back and mountpoints2 is still there. I've searched on google for a solution still have not found how to get rid of this permanently even used youtube.

    How do I get rid of these mountpoints2 permanently so when the pc is swittched onnn it doesn't open up the same folder over and over. The solution to this. I've even reinstalled win10 but kept the files and folders and the issues still remain. How to get rid of mountpoints2 permanently on win10

    Never heard about this before, but now looking some instances of it being a virus too. Have you known to always have this mountpoint2 or just came about ? Then at least do a full system scan.

    Not to sure about this Mountpoint2 has to do with what is shown here, but seems like old process from windows xp days.
    Look in Task Manager startup tab, see if find anything unusual starting up or type in run command MSCONFIG and look at services tab for non microsoft service running. http://www.ehow.com/how_8541638_delete-mountpoints2-regedit.html


    Some instances show it as a worm. Did you fully scan the system yet ? What are you using to do so ?

    From what i showed you in a link on removing and what i find on this mountpoint2 states this is reasons for it.
    MountPoints2 is a registry entry that stores data to USB devices, such as USB keys and removable hard drives.
    The MountPoints2 registry key contains cached information about every removable device seen so far.

    When doing registry change, do you have any connected USB devices and did ever have any issues with any ?
    If this is not what is says it is and then is a infection, will need people who are experienced in removal of such.
    Malwarebytes found 2 already, what other scans did you run ? Try at run command mrt.exe and do full scan with Windows Malicious Removal tool. Can try this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
    If this is a true infection and is not solved by other means not being an infection i can provide you with an alternative forum to make sure you are clean, then you can go from there.
