I was checking the items in my laptop running XP and one of the start-up items is regserve.exe. I searched and in Bleeping it recommended to boot into safe mode and delete. I've booted into safe mode and there are 4 entries. One is REGSERVE.EXE-1F065449.pf in wondows\Prefetch, RegServe.exe in Windows\system32, Regserve.exe in DELL\drivers\R80195\WinXp and RegServe.exe in Windows\system32\ReinstallBackups\0011\DriverFiles.

Should I delete them all? Is there a spyware program that I can download and run that would be a better option? I have Malewarebytes and Superantispyware.

Thank you

As you may see from a google search, depending on how the entry is exactly spelt, to hopefully avoid your deleting an actually needed file , you could try updating Malwarebytes, rebooting and running a quick scan to see what ,if anything, gets flagged up?

thanks,

I updated Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, scanned with both with nothing found. Also, scanned on Jotti's malware scan with 20 different engines and nothing found.

Should I delete the files? Should I remove it from my strtup?

Thank you.
