Got a prob while Rebuilding a new/old pc with a new clean version of Win death XP form a reputable retailer
While Dling some new windows updates, something snuck in.
The program name is "Registry cleaner 2.5"
it supposedly checks your HD for spyware. I don't want it so I stopped its action and deleted it. however every restart it re-downloaded itself , 6 times so far now in my attempts to remove it.
I've even contacted the original software contact @ email@example.com
with this polite email them:
"We want to uninstall your software but that seems impossible. How can we do so and also remove the task tray icon near the clock."
Thier reply was:
1. Visit www.sysregistry.com to install Registry Cleaner.
2.Enter your email register the product after instalation inside Registry
Cleaner program. (We provided you with FREE licence based on your email)
3.Run Register Cleaner to fix problems if they exist.
4.Visit Start->Programs and find Uninstall to uninstal registry cleaner
or visit Control Panel ->Add/Remove program
I entered the email and it rejected the email and the program asked how I would like to pay for a subscription to them.
Good advice only pls..
PM for further details
