System Information:
Windows 8.1
Intel® Pentium® CPU N3520 @ 2.16GHz
RAM 4.00 GB
64-bit OS, x64-based processor

 

Should I be concerned about the following registry entry?

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\{46577E3C-95B4-4f4f-B4A7-0C29D12FB15D}​

 

Thanks.

I Googled that number, too, and didn't come up with much. If you could export that whole registry entry, we might find something useful in there. I'm guessing you saw this in your Registry Editor so:
  • On that entry right click on it in the left side pane, then chose Export
  • In the Window that pops up type 46577 in the File name panel
  • Click on the Save as type drop down menu and choose Text Files (*.txt)
  • When that's done copy and paste the contents of 46577.txt in your next post

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

It appears to be related to an entry typically found in these locations...
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\{46577E3C-95B4-4f4f-B4A7-0C29D12FB15D}
C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\{46577E3C-95B4-4f4f-B4A7-0C29D12FB15D}

Thank you, quietman7. Those paths are associated with some questionable toolbars.

Sloioren, if your still with me please do the following:

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
  • The tool will start to update the database, please wait a bit.
  • Click on I agree button.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
This is just a scan.
