    I have a program that alerts be when stuff is added to my startup file and it alerted me about a program named "PRegScheduler MFC Application" and I clicked yes because I had just installed a bunch of software. Well I started to worry about it so I researched it and found this info:

    PowerReg Scheduler.exe and PowerReg SchedulerV2.exe are installed along with PowerQuest’s Partition Magic. It is based upon Leader Technologies’ Register.exe and PowerRegister products. Leader Tech advertises these features:

    "Generating reports of your user's data."
    "Create customer profiles."
    "Create A Valuable Database of Customer Buying Habits"
    "Two-way data transmission and communication is supported."

    This is spyware. We recommend removing it.

    PowerReg Scheduler.exe may show up as "PowerREGISTER" in your task list. It is used as a part of the product registration by a number of companies including MicroProse, IOmega and PowerQuest (Partition Magic). It pops up now and then to remind you to register. In many cases, once you do register, the program remains on your system. There are versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 making the rounds these days"

    So I told the program to disable it then it came up as if it wanted to re-install itself but I said "No" and now it is out of my startup but I need help on finding it on my computer. I bought something online yesterday should I be worried (I got the program a few days ago)? PLEASE PLEASE Someone help me :( :(.

    Edit: I have ran: Spybot, Adaware 6, SwatIt! and AVG Anti-Virus and they all found nothing.

    Your log looks okay. (y)

    As far as finding that application, do a file search for files with that name.

    ok I have searched and searched and all I found was a .dat file named PowerReg but I can't find a .exe file. Would there be a .exe file somewhere? I reall think it was installed with Splinter Cell which is a ubisoft product and they are known to put this on people's PCs. The reason I say this is that the .dat file was installed on the same day and the same time as I installed Splinter Cell. Is it ok to delete this program? I don't want to delete something that is not the bad program.

    What does the HiJackThis log show you? Whats running on my computer? If it's not running is it possible for it to still collect data? LAst but not least is it ok to check my bank and buy stuff online if it is not running?

    If you disabled it, I wouldn't worry about it. It may be considered "spyware", but it's not of the ominous, hacker-type, that you would need worry about conducting normal business with your PC.

    I see you have ZoneAlarm, so you shouldn't have any applications trying to phone home without you knowing about it and being able to stop it.


    A good application for scanning (and removing) ad/spy/malware is AdAware:

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=506

    After installing, download current updates and then scan your system. Everything AdAware finds is safe to delete. Keep it updated and regularly check your system.

    Yeah I got WinPatrol To disable it from starting but when I did it was like it deleted itself and then tried to re-install so I said no and now it's gone and I can't find it no where. Would it hurt anything if I delete the PowerReg.dat file? It is in the WINDOWS directory. When I click on it, it says deleting this could cause problems and all that stuff.

    I have Spybot S&D, AdAware, SwatIt! and AVG Anti-Virus and none of them picked it up even before I disabled it.

    PowerReg from Leadertech. Registration reminder as used by Iomega, Hasbro & Microprose, and others.

    Okay to delete. Anytime your working with your registry, make sure you do a back up of the registry first.

    So when I delete something out of the WINDOWs folder thats is working with my registry? Also will it be fine to just go into the folder and delete the program or do I need to use some kind of uninstaller? When you say back-up everything, is there a huge chance of it messing up something? Should I just leave it alone?

    No, not the same. The Registry is a completely different beast. When you said deleting from the registry I assumed you meant going into windows Registry to delete things. There's an option there to back up the Registry before you delete things there.

    Doesn't sound like you really meant the "Registry", you're just talking of deleting a file. No need to back anything up in this case. And yes, it's always best to uninstall a program rather than deleting it's files.

    :)

    I can't find anything about in the registry, could I be missing it? I don't have a uninstaller should I download on to remove this file? All I can find is the PowerReg.dat file could there be a .exe file or other files I can't find? Is there anyway I can find out other files that are tied in with the .dat file?

    Go ahead and delete that file. If there's no entry in add/remove for that application you can't "uninstall" it.

    ok I deleted the file. Is there a .exe file anywhere? Or was that what I deleted? While searching for the PowerReg file I found a history log of winpatrol so I don't know if this will help but I post it anyway: [Run]

    Well, it looks like it here:

    C:\Documents and Settings\preferred customer\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\PowerReg Scheduler.exe=200


    To help you search for it, make sure your system is set to view hidden files. Here's instructions:

    Yeah it is searching in hidden files and comes up with nothing. I did say that log was before I disabled it from starting up right? Got any ideas of what I can do?

    Edit: When it searches it says "Looking in Hidden Folders and Files"
