Are you running your scan in Safe mode?
Here are steps to get rid of advertising things in the Registry, and anywhere else:
If you think you already have Spyware/Advertising Ware in your computer, run these as follows:
Download: SpyBot Search & Destroy; 1.3
(CWShredder is intended only for removal of CoolWebSearch files; placed as spyware on the harddrive). It is not a "stand alone" scan, but needs to be run. Download the free version by clicking on "Download stand alone version of CW Shredder".
All 3 of the above programs run better and much faster when run in SafeMode.
To get into SafeMode:
Re-boot the computer, and immediately after starting up, Press and hold down, F8, at top of keypad.
When the options show on the screen, use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to select
It's best to run the AdAware scan first; 3 times; then re-boot.
Then, run the AdAware scan again 3 times; then run the SpyBot. Then, run CWShredder.
Reason for running so many times:
Some of these trojans' files can be deleted the first time; leaving some others; but on re-boot, they re-write the files that were deleted.
Running multiple times deletes most of it the first
If you wish to have a great program, after you clean out Spyware/Advertising Ware:
SpyWare Blaster 3.2
Great, free, program that STOPS spyware, trojans, home page hijacks, etc, BEFORE they get into your computer. Check it out at CNET at link:
Will Pandascan delete this adware from your Registry? If so, let it do it.
If it won't, then run the above in Safe Mode, and it should take care of the problem for you.
PS. The other alternative is to Edit the Registry. If you wish steps to do that, please post back in this same thread. But, editing the registry can be fatal to a computer, it you delete the wrong thing!
