    Hey everyone. I was just browsing my Webroot Spysweeper and was using it to remove unnecessary startup entries and I noticed one that says "PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe". I have no idea what this is so I Googled that. The results that came up said this is adware. It's weird though because I just scanned for spyware/adware the other day and nothing came up. Could someone either tell me what this is or tell me how to remove it? Thanks!

    Doubt it would - It should be as simples as deleting the folder for it in Program Files and remove the entry using msconfig

    Suggest you add these tools

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their definition updates and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything they say.

    If you have no luck with it, get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put it in a permanent folder, run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the log here.

    I already use all of those tools plus Webroot Spysweeper which is supposed to be considered one of the best spyware scanners in the industry. ;) Anyway, I'll post my Hijack This log anyway just to make sure everything is clean:
