​Hello, I have Regsvr32 error at startup. I have run ccleaner, malware bytes, and adwcleaner and am attaching appropriate the logs. Could someone please guide to fix this problem. I believe Aqnrworks, Uckjmedia, Chromium from the FRST log are part of the problem as Chromium was installed by something, not sure what and it would load up automatically at startup. I removed the files from appdata.

​Edit: Issue has been solved. Not sure how to edit the title.

I downloaded Autoruns and used that to remove the 3 entries mentioned above and the startup message has now disappeared. Is there anything else I need to do?

Here are some Preventive tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future

:step1: Browse more secure :step2: Make sure you keep your Windows OS current.
  • Windows XP users can visit Windows update regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs.
  • Windows Vista / 7 / 8 users can update via
    Start menu > All Programs > Windows Update > Check for Updates (in left hand task pane).
:step3: Avoid P2P
  • If you think you're using a "safe" P2P program, only the program is safe, not the data.
  • You will share files from unsafe sources, and these may be infected.
  • Some bad guys use P2P filesharing as an important chanel to spread their wares.
:step4: Use only one anti-virus software and keep it up-to-date.

:step5: Firewall
Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

:step6: Backup regularly
You never know when your PC will become unstable or become so infected that you can't recover it.

:step7: Use Strong passwords!

:step8: Email attachments
Do not open any unknown email attachments, which you received without asking for it!


Extra note:
Keep your Browser, Java, pdf Reader and Adobe Flash Up to Date.
And you could install Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit to run alongside your traditional anti-virus or anti-malware products.

Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks.
