Why are you trying to delete it?

Are you having problems with the computer?

What is the problem you are having that makes you want to modify the registry? My suggestion is to post the problem you are having so we can see what is wrong, I also suggest that you no longer try to modify the registry unless you wish to become an expert on reinstallation of Windows and that is something that could cause you in this instance to lose a lot of your data.

I came accross this after a spybot scan. After a search on the web (I think it disables the firewall) so I have deleted it through spybot. When I started the computer Norton security was off ,I turned it on.
then checked windows firewall it was on. I ran a spybot scan did not find anything
Advise please.

My "Rules" on how to delete stuff:

1) Make a folder on your Desktop - call it something like "Too Risky to delete"
2) Move the file that you want to delete to this folder
3) Make a note in the folder (text document) about where it belongs (so you can put it back if you need it)
4) Wait for 2 weeks
5) Delete the file and the note to the Recycle bin (this gives it another bunch of time before the Recycle Bin empties itself.

If at any time you run into problems - just put the file back where it belongs and see if it fixes the problem. If not, follow the process again.

This gives you approximately a month to see if you need the file
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

You can only use one firewall at a time (resident on your computer)
