i've already answered that last question in my first post ;)


No you didn't. You said that your other registry cleaners can't find it. Did you go into your registry and look for that key?

It doesn't make much sense that CCleaner would detect it and not be able to remove it, and I think it's redundant to tell you to "make sure your using an admin account" because you most likely already know that. What's really strange is using RegEdit you can't see it. When you stated that RegSeeker can't find it were you talking about using its registry cleaning portion, or its search registry function.


You may want to try Sysinternals RootkitRevealer, hence it will find some malformed registry entries rather they are rootkit based or not, getting rid of what it finds is a whole other matter.

ummm yeah i did. just so you know, regedit is the tool made by Microsoft to browse the registry. i believe i have already stated that it can't find it ;).


@Andvari: i pretty much mean every program besides CCleaner can't find it; even other Registry Cleaners.

as for the Rootkit Revealer, i'll try it.

Hi John


Here's a few options that may help.


First Disable Spybots Tea Timer as it could interfere with fixing entries. (Right click the teatimer icon in the system tray and choose exit. It will come back on after the next startup)


Try Ccleaner again and see if it can remove the entry.


If not open Notepad and save the next part into it



regedit /e Look.txt "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\?"notepad Look.txt



Press File from the top bar of Notepad and Choose 'Save As' , Name it Find.bat, Change the 'Save as Type' to All Files then save it to your desktop.


Double click Find.bat to run the batch script, If it displays 'Cannot find the Look.txt file' then it doesn't exist, If notepad opens and displays some registry values then it does exist.


Assuming it does exist, Open notepad again and save this into it making REGEDIT4 the top line in Notepad.






Save it as type 'All Files' again and this time call it Remove.reg then save it to your desktop, Double click remove.reg and allow it to be merged into the Registry.


If you saved the first batch file to your desktop and it found the entry then there will be a text file called Look.txt. Delete this file and then run the Find.bat again, If the regfix worked it should then show 'Look.txt cannot be found' , To confirm it was removed run Ccleaner on issues again to make sure it doesnt show in the scan.


If the batch file finds the reg entry again after using the Regfix then it means the permissions need looking at on that Reg key to enable full control to Administrators, but I can explain that in more detail if the entry does exist and cannot be removed.


Regarding your Hijack Log these can be fixed.

Your Proxy Server settings also look abit strange as it doesnt specify the Proxy Address or the Port Number but I've left that off the list as it maybe genuine. You would probably know better about the Proxy Settings in place on your system so I will leave that one for you to decide :)


The R1 entries are from Yahoo but you are being redirected when you use the Search Bar, Red Client Apps is Red Sheriff so they should be removed. You can read more about Red Sheriff Here & Here.


Hope That Helps

I just wanted to say that's a darn good tip! :)

Hi Andavari, It does make things alot faster and saves having to manually search the registry so I thought It maybe useful here. As I'm sure you already know it can be used to export any key from the registry. Another which is useful is to check the Run Keys


regedit /e HKCURun.txt "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"regedit /e HKLMRun.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"copy HKLMRun.txt + HKCURun.txt = Run.txtdel /q HKLMRun.txtdel /q HKCURun.txtnotepad Run.txtdel /q Run.txt


If you want to keep the text file it creates then remove the last line (del /q Run.txt)




If you need more help let us know what happens when you run the batch file. I created the key on myown system yesterday to make Ccleaner find the exact same entry as yours, The batch file shows it the first time but after running the regfix neither Ccleaner or the Batch file finds the key. You should also be running them with the Admin account incase there are any restrictions on that registry key.
