    Thanks, normnork, new.net is uninstalled, I just need to get these entries out of HJT. The thing is I'd rather go to eat locusts than re-install New.net to uninstall it again

    putasolution ...

    LOL about the locusts.

    Did you try this lspfix: http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm ? Fix the "I know what I am doing" box and move the relevant files over to remove.

    IMO, it would be worth trying to have Ad-aware fix something like this.

    HJT is supposed to take those items out of the reg. You may have to go into regedit and do a manual search.

    Thank winchester, have done an lspfix, said that it had fixed some errors, rebooted and reran HJT. The same 5 little devils reappeared.

    I think a regedit search may be in order, I needed something to do anyways ;)

    $teve, Nite Hawk, I will do all AAW and SSD again on top of the regedit I think.

    Pssst, PAS. We, the so-called experts, aren't supposed to have these kinds of problems. :D :D

    Didn't your computer read the fine print??

    Hi putasolution,

    If they're still there after your next fix could you post up the full log. I doubt I'd see anything that you hadn't already checked out, but something must be bringing them back up. An extra set of eyes might do it. (y)

    They're more likely to belong to Nitehawk, Steve or Winchester than me, but what the hey.. :D

    Cheers

    Liam

    I am very surprised that HT isn't removing them ... I'm sure you are using the latest v1.97. If so, then Merijn may need to be alerted to this thread.

    If you do this manually via regedit, (obviously) make a backup of the WinSock keys first.

    SpyDie sent me this clip from Andrew Clover's site, and stressed that it needed to be done:

    "It is possible to remove LSPs by hand by editing the registry, but it's quite a bit of effort and it's easy to make a mistake. If you want to try anyway, run 'regedit' and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2\Parameters\Protocol_Catalog9 . For each key in Catalog_Entries, open the 'PackedCatalogItem' value and check if it starts with 'lsp.dll'. If it does delete that entry. Renumber the remaining keys so that they count up from 000000000001 one at a time, and set the 'Num_Catalog_Entries' value in Protocol_Catalog9 to the highest key number you have. See, I told you it was a lot of effort."

    Of course, it won't be "lsp.dll" in your case.

    SpyDie said if this part "Renumber the remaining keys so that they count up from 000000000001 one at a time, and set the 'Num_Catalog_Entries' value in Protocol_Catalog9 to the highest key number you have" isn't done correctly, then the whole WinSock will break.
