Hi all. I would like some assistance with a little problem my computer has developed. Can anyone tell me why the McAfee programs are being automatically created in the CurrentVersion/Run and in the ControlSet/Enum/Root/Legacy directories of the registry?

I recently completely uninstalled McAfee Total Protection, using MCPR.exe and MCPR2.exe (provided by McAfee) and am now using Kaspersky; however, as you can see by the following hijack log, the McAfee startup items will not go away, even after I manually delete them. I uses "autoruns.exe" from sysinternals.com and watch as they auto-repopulate, just by hitting the refresh button.

I have spent many hours scrubbing the registry to remove ALL McAfee line items, using the suspect filenames, "NAI", McAfee, and Network Associates as my Find parameters. Any ideas as to what makes this happen?

First of all, you are using an older version of HijackThis. Please do the following to download and install the latest version of HijackThis v2.0.2:

CLICK HERE to download the HijackThis Installer:
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Double-click on HJTInstall.exe to run the program.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.
  • Accept the license agreement by clicking the "I Accept" button.
  • Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click "Save log" to save the log file and then the log will open in Notepad.
  • Click on "Edit -> Select All" then click on "Edit -> Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and paste the log in your next reply.
  • Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet! Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
You may delete the older version once you have successfully downloaded and installed the latest version of HijackThis v2.0.2.
