i'm sure most of you must have heard of the registry entry mountpoints2 is there some way that you can get rid of it. i open the registry editor and delete it and it keeps reappearing all the time. also i have a problem with the show/hide folders option too. i ran a malwarebytes scan of the system and removed the infected files.also the malwarebytes did not find out the gendel32 file in my comp. i deleted it manually. please advise me.

There is nothing inherently wrong with those registry keys - outside of perhaps Autorun issues involving infected USB drives. They will come back the next time you use a USB drive, clean or not.
I am not sure if you can remove them permanently....

You could have a look here for more info:

I see that Judy has answered your other thread. I suggest you stick with that one in order to be helped in a timely manner.

Cheers :)
