I play poker online, and I've uninstalled a site, yet they still remember my information if I reinstall the software, I tried many registry cleaners, and none seem to remove whatever file they installed on my pc to remember my account information. The only way I've seen it get removed is through reformatting, but I have way to many files on my pc to do that with ease. So I was curious if anyone here knew of a way to find and remove this file from the computer, or at least know where they could of installed it. Maybe it's locked and unable to simply remove through a registry cleaner? An example of a poker site that installs this kind of software is royalvegaspoker.com . I don't use the site any longer and wish for whatever they have my pc to be removed. Anyone know how to help? I can't see where else they can install something on my pc other than a cookie or in my registry. Thanks for any info

Hello Scoops

Without knowing the specific name of the file you want to delete, your playing a guessing game here. There may be dealing with a physical file on your system and not just a registry entry.

A lot of this online poker stuff are downloaded ActiveX Objects which are actually downloaded Program Files [IE Add-ons] that are located in C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files. To manage add-ons open IE go to > Tools > Manage Add-ons.

Rather than guess what you have or don't have on your system, I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
