    I had a program that recently got flagged by Avast which I wasn't able to ignore. I have since chosen to remove that program by uninstalling it. Uninstalling it required a reboot.

    Now I keep getting alerts about the uninstallation failing whenever I start the computer. It's not affecting anything, but it's pissing me off to the point that I want to reformat - which would really suck for me right now.

    Is there a way to purge this from running at startup so that I don't have to deal with it anymore?

    NOTE: I HAVE checked to make sure it isn't in the "Start" listing. It's hiding somewhere else. e.g., where CCLeaner (and others) cannot see it.

    Thank you in advance for your ideas.

    Corey :(

    Load REGEDIT and check in HKLM or HKCU hive: \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
