Thanks a lot B'g Computer People,

 

     This is the second time I've used RKill, Adware, etc. When it came to the log, unlike last time, all the lines were forced together into one continuous very long paragraph so I could not read what I may have wanted to delete from the Notepad log. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. P.

 

PS: The two programs that aren't in Search here, are

 

1. www.logmein123.com. This appeared on the permanent menu, as "Run...," with documents, computer, control panel, etc. It's font is a bit smaller. When I click on it, (only left click in functional), it opens the run window but www.logmein123.com is already present. It is not to be found in the "Uninstall" or through search, or MS diagnostics, etc..

 

2. The Other one is Max Driver 7. Although it was deleted its tile remains in "Uninstall" but won't be removed as it "does not exist." This is a new one to me.

Welcome to BleepingComputer!

 

Sounds like you have word wrap on in notepad (to turn it off go to format -> word wrap).

 

They both sound like leftovers if you have removed them from the programs already, and I wouldn't worry too much about them. So right-click does not work on logmein? Strange. If you really want to get rid of them, you could install them again and then use Revo Uninstaller to remove any leftovers.

 

Let's see if anybody else has any ideas on to deal with this, because I'm not completely sure on why they are doing this. Anyway, I don't think using malware tools are going to help you.

This is known as a orphan file.  An orphan file is a file that exists in the target’s copy of the replication set data, but it does not exist in the source replication set data, this is why it still appears.

 

It is harmless, I would suggest just forgetting about it.

 

Edit:  Run the disc cleanup tool and see if it will delete the orphan file.
