    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post but will try...

    DD was AGAIN listening to music sites yesterday and filled my computer with A LOT of garbage. Upon investigating my registry, I found a folder, which I can not verify on Google, etc., to save my life, named -
    "bowskeepref with subfolder [GREYGREATBIKE]." Does anyone have ANY IDEA what this is? I'd like to know if it's safe to delete.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TSG

    Go to http://www.merijn.org/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
    make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log (in the security section)
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    If Merijn.org is still down due to the DDOS attack on it, the alternative download sites for Hijackthis are:

    Thanks MJACK547,

    I've already run HJT, Adaware and Spysweeper and removed a TON of items yesterday but this one didn't show up. I just happened on it when checking the registry to make sure everything had been removed. It isn't familiar and as I said, I've not been able to find a thing on it anywhere online. It just looks to me like it doesn't belong and I was wondering if anyone was familiar with it.

    Blessings,
    HisGirl37 <><
