    I have Windows XP and an AdAware scan hit on this as malware[Windows Reg Data Malware HKEY -Classes-Root:regfi Possi]. Can anyone tell me what this is? AdAware can seem to do anything with it and SpyBot doesn't recognize it . Please help.

    This could possibly be a sign of a possible browser hijack attempt. If ad-aware has found it, remove it. Download, update and run spybot, post your log and I'm sure someone will be along to help you with any problem soon. Nothing to worry about though, I have had lots of possible hijack attempts.
