WINDOWS\System32\CatRoot2\edb.chk and WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.chk keep showing up as items to delete after running REGISTRY MECHANIC. CatRoot2 does not always return immediately after deletion but the other one does. Any suggestions? :thumbsup:

Hello TimBits

Are you having any malware related problems, strange pop up notifications, browser redirects, etc? Do you know what edb.chk is? Tinking with this file or its registry entries could result it problems as indicated by Microsoft in here.

If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes or use registry cleaning tools. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.
