    Hi All,

    I have an error message on startup (Vista Business) which reads: "lsdelete program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK". From what I understand, lsdelete is associated with winlogon. Can anyone provide information as to what this program is, and how can I fix this problem?

    Thanks for your help?

    Liam

    This seems to be a problem using Adaware with all versions of Vista. To fix the error you must to the following...

    Uninstall ADAWARE 2007 from add/remove programs

    Manually remove LAVASOFT folder in Program files

    Go to START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, RUN

    Type in REGEDIT

    Search for LAVASOFT and manually delete any LAVASOFT entries

    Click on EDIT and then FIND

    Type in BOOTEXECUTE and then search and open the entry

    Manually edit the entry and remove the information for LSDELETE

    Do NOT change any other AUTOCHECK information

    RESTART computer and all will be back to normal


    I always advise making a backup of the registry first just to be safe.

    Regards,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your help. I have uninstalled ad aware, and deleted the lavasoft program files and lavasoft registry entries. From the bootexecute part I don't understand. The bootexecute key in my registry has a subkey labelled 'LastKey' which the registry search highlights. It's value is: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\Winners\x86_microsoft-windows-smss-bootexecute_31bf3856ad364e35_none_d37a23bf8704487c, so where exactly do I remove the information for LSDELETE?

    Ta,

    Liam.

    By searching for BOOTEXECUTE in the registry it should take you to the autocheck options, i'm not sure why it's not showing in your search.

    This direct method might be easier...

    REGEDIT, EDIT, FIND, and search for lsdelete

    You should deffinately now see the AUTOCHECK registry entry in BOOTEXECUTE

    Open the entry (double click)

    Delete the entry for LSDELETE only, leave all others intact (when you then exit from regedit it might say cannot have incomplete string, or similar, this is ok as it will auto correct).

    Let me know if you follow this ok,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your help, replies, and detailed support - much much better than what I get from the local tech support! Have located the AUTOCHECK entry in BOOTEXECUTE, and can see the lsdelete information there. Just to double check, if I delete the word lsdelete that will stop autocheck from looking for the program? Thought, I'd paste the info below to shed a little more light on the matter - maybe System Mechanic is the program interfering?

    autocheck autochk *
    autocheck lsdelete
    smrgdf C:\Program Files\iolo\System Mechanic Professional 6\
    iolobtdfg C:\Windows\system32

    Cheers, and Thanks again.

    Liam.

    Hi Liam,

    Yes, delete the whole line 'autocheck lsdelete'

    and then that will cure the start up issue.

    I'm glad I could help. I had the same problem, and after I worked out how to cure it I though it was good to share with anyone else having the same priblem, as there were not even any pointers to a fix on the Lavasoft site.

    Regards,

    Steve
