I noticed an entry in my Ewido Processes and Auto Start (there are under Analysis),C:prog files\java\j2re1.4.2_03. I located this file with my search engine and deleted it from there.It was the Installer file.I had previously deleted this program from the Add/Remove Programs.The Ewido forum suggested I run this Windows Installer Cleanup,but it has its risks,and recommend doing a registry backup first.
Has anyone used this utility?
Is CCleaner the same kind of program?
Will Norton "Save and Restore"(the new Ghost) back up my registry?
BTW,after I emptied my recycle bin,the j2re1.4.2 wasn't showing up in the running processes in Ewido anymore.
I am clueless when it comes to registry changes,so hope the above question makes sense.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
