- I RAN THIS POST YESTERDAY BUT GOT NO RESPONSE.

I was running Registry First Aid and saw a file called EbatesMoeMoneyMaker. It said the "command" has invalid file reference. I checked the registry and found this:

[HKEY-LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg\EbatesMoeMoneyMaker]
key=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
item=EbatesMoeMoneyMaker"
hkey=HKLM
command=wjview/cp"C:\Program Files\EbatesMoeMoneyMaker\System\Code"Main Ip:"C:\Program Files\EbtesMoeMoneyMaker"
inimapping=0

Can I delete the entire file,including the values, from the registry without messing up the registry and my computer?

I also ran HiJack This. Here is the results. Does anything need to be checked and deleted?

It is also an item in my startup file. It's unchecked but can it be deleted. If so, how do I do it?

I don't think it is possible to delete it from your startup file, but as long as it is unchecked you should have no problems.

You might try downloading and running RegScrubXP at this location:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=2048

It will check your registry for things you do not need and then remove them, making a backup in case you need to undo the changes. You might also run Ad-Aware and especially Spybot S&D. If it's something that has been placed in your registry by an outside source, these programs will usually detect it and get rid of it.

Hope this helps,
Hue

Run CWShredder first, then Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D. Make sure you update those before scanning (you can do that within its respective programs)

When you have scanned with those programs, redo the HJT log.

I first tried RegScrubXP that Hue suggested. It removed 83 problem entries. Then I ran CWShredder. It said system is completely clean. Adaware removed 22 cookies. Spybod S&D found nothing. Registry First Aid still says Ebates Moe Money Maker"command"has invalid file reference and not to remove it.

Can I safely remove old programs in the registry that I have deleted, like RoboForm, PopUpStopper and Free Ram XP? Ebates Moe Money Maker is listed as a program.

Here is Hijack This results:

Do any of these need to be checked?

You can export your registry, so if there is a problem you can just simply import it back in (like a back up)

Ebates is known spyware / annoyance. It installs without permission. You can delete it.

Your HJT log looks clean,though this needs to be removed
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {339BB23F-A864-48C0-A59F-29EA915965EC} - (no file)

Do you know what RFAgent is?

If you care to remove the entry in your msconfig / startup folder then :
select Start, Run, enter regedit, and press Enter. Navigating the left pane of the Registry Editor as if it were Windows Explorer, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run-. Note the hyphen (-) at the end of the address (believe me, you do not want to go to \CurrentVersion\Run). Once there, you can delete any listing in the right pane.

You may be able to identify several other unchecked start-up items in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

The RFAgent is a program file that is associated with Registry First Aid.

When I go to the registry editor, I can't find current version\Run with a hyphen. Only run. When I ran Registry First Aid, it showed that EbatesMoeMoneyMaker was at [HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg\EbatesMoeMoneyMaker]. That is where the other programs that I mentioned also are.

I'm getting a popup from my firewall that it detected that C:\Winnt\Explorer,exe was replaced by another appliction with description "Windows Explorer". It asks "Do I want to accept the replacement?" YES or NO.

I didn't remove Ebates... because you said not to mess with anything in the Run catagory. Only if the Run had a hyphen after it.
