    Hi

    I have recently cleaned up my computer and have got rid of spyware, malware, threats etc. I have installed ZoneAlarm Security (Firewall and Antivirus) and do the usual regular checks with Registry Mechanic and other clean up tools.

    There is one stubborn entry that keeps appearing in my HT scan results and although I'm certain it poses no threat, I just can't get rid of it! Every time I do a HT scan and check the box to remove/repair by hitting the 'Fix Checked' button I do an immediate re-scan and the blighter is still there :confused:

    The entry is :

    024 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - (no file)

    Is there any way to get rid of this thing?

    My HJT Log is below.

    Thanks for your help.
