Yes, you can restore the files from 'recovery' or you can reinstall Kazaa or whatever other thing you have that hosts this garbage.

Brilliant Digital is spyware. If you use spybot I don't know why you would want to go to their website, but Spybot has a Restore feature you can use to undo anything it did.

get rid of everything bde:

BDE/B3D Projector/Brilliant removal instructions

Do a file search for bde*.* in your Windows system directory.
Search and destroy the following:
c:\Windows\BDE (the folder and everything in it)
c:\Windows\Temp\Brilliant (the folder and everything in it)
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdedata2.dll
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdedownloader.dll
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdefdi.dll
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdeinsta2.dll
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdeinstall.exe
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdesecureinstall.cab
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdesecureinstall.exe
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdeverify.dll
c:\Windows\SYSTEM\bdeverify.exe

Now fire up Regedit and delete the following trails:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.b3ds HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\b3ds_auto_file
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\BDESmartInstaller.BDESmartInstaller
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\BDESmartInstaller.BDESmartInstaller.1
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{67925165-C4B6-11D2-B9C6-0000E84F59A6}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{82FC7881-AACC-11D2-B9C6-0000E842E40A}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Brilliant Digital Entertainment
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Zupdate

Additionally, the B3D Projector configures itself to update silently at system startup.
To remove this (yes, not even this is removed at uninstall), delete the b3dUpdate value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software \Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

while we are on the subject, I used spyware nuker and it cleaned my machine of spyware alright, but in doing so deleted critical os files and I had to end up with a complete reinstall. So before I kill Imesh on both of my other machines (xp and w2000pro) can someone suggest a safe way to do this. Is uninstall sufficient? Is spybot safe? Are there any issues with firewall programs?
