Remove PUM.Hijack.StartMenu (Virus Removal Guide)

PUM.Hijack.StartMenu is a specific detection used by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other antivirus products to indicate and detect a Potentially Unwanted Modification.

The PUM.Hijack.StartMenu detections are not actually false\positives or actual infections but rather settings which may have been changed by various programs.

A PUM (Potentially Unwanted Modification) is an unwanted change made to your computer’s settings. PUMs can be performed by both legitimate applications and malware, though changes made by malware are more likely to cause serious problems.
PUMs often modify settings at the system level. On Windows systems, this usually involves modifying the Windows registry.
PUM.Hijack.StartMenu is a modification in the Windows Registry, which will hijack your Windows Start Menu while there are a few legitimate programs that may trigger this behavior, in most cases this modification is due to a computer infection.
