I was surfing the net, and Norton popped up a program control window telling me that "pndsregs.exe is attempting to connect to a DNS server." It recommended blocking on all ports. I hit OK. Three seconds later the same message popped up. After blocking the same thing several times, I manually configured the blocking rule. It still pops up every few seconds asking me to block the program.
I asked a friend at school about it, and he said to google the application. I typed it in and found a site similar to this one, and they were telling someone to locate and delete "C:\windows\system32\pndsregs.exe". So I went and searched up the file name. I found the file right away, but when I tried to delete it, I got the following message "cannot delete pndsregs: access is denied make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currntly in use"
How do I delete this pain-in-the-neck program?
