I just ran autoruns just to see what I would see, and I found an entry that I can find nothing about.

Here is the full path that autoruns provided

C:\ProgramFiles\InternetExplorer\SABProcEnum.sys

It says file not found. I checked under non-plug-and-play devices in the Management Control Panel, but it wasn't there.

I did a google search, and the only legit. sites I saw simply had the entry in HiJack This logs. Some had the file and others didn't. I didn't go so far as to read the threads however, just the abstract provided by Google.

My suspicion is that this is a registry key for a part of SuperAntiSpyware for which one gets the file if one gets the paid version, or perhaps gets their AdBuster (blocker?) program, but I am not at all certain.

Anyone know what this entry is? Should I leave it alone or get rid of it? And if so, how?

I asked your question to SAS and they said this, So I guess you leave it

That would not appear in your hosts file, it may be in your temp folders or cache - it is used by the FileResearchCenter and SUPERAdBlocker - it is our kernel driver.

Thanks for checking on that boopme. Hmm. I wonder why I would have the registry key for that file when I don't have the paid version or, apparently, the file.

I wonder which cache? I regularly clean out temp. files and cache.
