    In my HKCU folder—the main folder itself—I have two entries which I haven't seen on other machines: HTTP11SAVED REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1) and HTTP11SAVED_VAL REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (0). Are they good entries or bad entries?
    RTG :cool:

    PS this is the same machine referred to in another of my posts, Need HiJack Review and Help.

    I have no idea what they are -- just use the registry editor's File > Export to export (save) the curious keys -- then right click on them and delete them.

    They won't affect any basic operations -- and if they do break something you can easily restore them with a double-click.

    Thanks! I'll try that in a few; right now running AVG. So far its found 6 infected files all having to do with the same trojan (biB.exe, bi.dll, etc.). I have a feeling it will be finding more...if you have the chance, could you look at my other post referred to above? It looks to be a mess. Thanks!

    I prefer to leave the security issues to the specialists -- if you have posted and are receiving help in the Security forum -- I'm sure you are getting good help and you should stick with that thread.

    I can just tell you that those registry entries have nothing to do with the operation of Windows -- they were put there by some 3rd party program.
