Everyday, whenever I run Ccleaner, the registry scan finds something "ShellNoRoam". I fix the issue every time, but it keeps coming back. What is it, why is it, and what should I do about it?

Thanks in advance.

It is a part of the registry that Windows creates, it will just replace it each time you delete it.

Thank you for your reply.

I have one more question about this issue:

I have been using Ccleaner for a couple of years and it never found this before. I am not using the new version. I have decided to stay with the old one that doesn't have the "wipe free space" feature. What changed to cause it to see this as a registry problem?

Thank you.

Possibly a new program or an update to Windows. To make sure that you arent infected:

Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

I already have Malwarebytes on my computer. Should I download it again and rename it as you suggested or just run the scan?

Just run the scan but make sure that you update it using the "Update" tab. And then run a scan

Clean, clean, clean. I just think it's from a new program or recent update that it keeps replacing the entry. Most likely, if it was malware in the registry, then Malwarebytes would have caught it
