Persistent Handler can not get rid of
I am desperately seeking help to find a solution to remove this infected Persistent Handler from the registry.

I tried everything that I know of but nothing seem to be working. I ran spy emergency, zone alarm, counter spy, epest patrol etc. None of these software seem to be completely getting rid of this persistent handler. It keeps reappearing.


Would you be kind enough to take a look at my saved log and advise me which registry should I hijack.

Please, please help me.... This persistent handler is not only slowing down my computer it is irritating and I am losing it.

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

I know that R3 are to be remove but this is a legit program not sure way it is showing up on this line.

Just can not see anything bad on my log

Smile Persistent Handler
Try Registry Fix; that works by removing the file associations.
