Hello, it's good to be where ComboFix came from.  That has saved my bacon many times.  (I am working in software these days as a troubleshooting engineer.)


So I installed a Cisco Valet connector for a temporary wireless network and now the large, annoying red entry, taking up the slot for Disk D:\, will not leave its usurped place inside My Computer.  I found the official Microsoft link for uninstalling this nuisance (it is not present in Control Panel uninstall).  The Microsoft FixYa downloaded a third party uninstaller, which did not work since Valet or the other names it might have could not be found.  Then I did a listing of all autoruns and did not find it.  Then I searched the registry for Valet and every time I found anything related I zapped it.


Now, the emblem still sits, smugly in My Computer window.  It just won't go, and I don't want to run Combo Fix just for this (assuming it is available for Windows 7).  Anyone got an answer?


Thank you,


Leon Malinofsky
