:thumbsup: I uninstalled Registry Patrol (Rogue Security Software, thanks for letting me know Bleeping Computer Community!!!) and Control Panel does not show it on my PC.

However, it is still in my Windows Explorer, just not on the "C:/program files/Registrypartrol.exe" It is in C:/Registrypatrol.exe.

Can I just delete this part? It appears to be a full executable file. If I delete it, I would do a "Glary Utilities, Registry Scan" to get rid of the remanents. Will that cause more problems or make it as useless as possible?

I have two other programs that are the same way, but I am really worried about the Registrypatrol.

For instance, since install and uninstall, I cannot access my jpg files by opening the folders. I also cannot save my jpg files for the same reason. I have to copy a jpg to the Desktop inorder to access and attach to an email or document.

Concerned but hoping someone has a good word for me about getting rid of this program, I am humbly yours, Pat :flowers:

(Sorry for the typo in the Heading - Successful is the word.)
