Shortly after loading Spyware Dr. I began to get an error message during boot-up along the lines of:
"lsdelete file not found," then says it will continue booting without it.

Does anyone know about "lsdelete"? Even Microsoft doesn't have any references to it in their knowledgebase.

What I was able to find makes reference to this message occurring after uninstalling Ad-Aware, the following method was used to stop the message.

The following instructions involve making changes in the registry, for this reason you should back up your registry before you make any changes.

Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERUNT.exe

1.) Click on the Start button, then click on the start menu item called 'Run'

2.) In it's text field type in REGEDIT, and click on the OK button

3.) In the Registry Editor, on the File Menu bar click on Edit, then on Find, and type in BootExecute (and search for it)

4.) Once BootExecute is located, and selected (highlighted), on the File Menu bar click on Edit, then Modify

5.) In the Value Data box, manually delete ONLY the entry called: autocheck lsdelete
(Note: Do NOT change any other AUTOCHECK information)

6.) Exit the Registry Editor

7.) Restart the computer and all will be back to normal

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Thank you for the instructions on fixing my "lsdelete" problem. Sorry I couldn't respond sooner; have too much going on at work!

Best Regards,
