Hello folks,

I am new to this forum. A friend and a Google search led me here. I have used computers for many years and am comfortable with them but I consider myself primarily a user and not techie. I am an aging consultant with a particular interest in eLearning.

Recently I have been plagued by spyware - especially AntiVirus Gold, Adware Delete, oneclicksearches.com, etc. I have tried four different AntiSpyware programs to get rid of it - Ad-Aware, Spybot, Webroot Spy Sweeper (yes, I paid for it) and the Windows beta. The first two did not even appear to detect AntiVirus Gold. The last two appeared to find it but failed to delete it.

A friend suggested that I try www.bleepingcomputer.com and, praise be, there are specific steps to remove AntiVirus Gold. Hooray!

I followed the steps verrrry carefully. When I tried to use Killbox to delete the suggested files, I got this dialogue box after requesting a reboot:

(I can't copy and paste from here so this is the text of the message)
PendingFilenameRenameOperations Registry Data has been removed by External Process!

Does this mean that I have screwed up my registry? Does it mean that one of the previous scans by the Anti-Spyware programs has done this?

How do I proceed from here?

Thanks.

I concur with Seth the Hijackthis forum has people that can with Killbox issues. I was glancing through the Hijackthis forum and saw several other people with the same issue as yours and there is a specific fix for it. They also need some info from the scans of hijackthis and Killbox. I recommend reading the tutorials for both items and post yoiur scans in the hijackthis forum here at BC.

Sorry I didn't answer your question. It means that something was found and dealt with by Killbox. You sholud be able too boot normally and conduct the scans.
