    I have recently found problems with my computer since I noticed a program in the add/remove section called bridge. I have ran ad-aware 6.0 with the latest update and I am now receiving a message when I reboot saying error loading c:\windows\downloadprogramfiles\bridge.dll I have run the latest version of highjack this and posted the log below. As I am a novice I do not want to attempt to delete anything without advice. When you reply can you please give me instructions on how to delete the actual files. Is it safe to delete the quarantined objects form ad-aware. Yor advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Coach.

    Hi coach,

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\Updreg.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDLL] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll",Load

    O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://207.188.7.150/1393ddbe99ba6312f706/netzip/RdxIE601.cab

    Then reboot.

    What mosts liely happened is that AdAware removed bridge.dll, but was unable/forgot the startup entry.

    You can delete the Adaware backups safely after a week or so without problems.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I followed the instructions and have posted the new log. I do not get the error on start up any more but the program bridge is still listed as installed in add/remove programs and when I go to delete it I then get the error about unable to load bridge.dll I now also have backup files on my computer of the rdxie file.
    cheers

    Hi coach,

    Always backup your registry before making manual changes.
    In Me or XP that is easiest done by making a Manual Restore Point.
    You can remove the orphaned entries in Add/Remove Software by following this procedure:
    Click Start > Run > type or copy & paste regedit > OK
    The registry editor will open.
    In the Registry editor navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and delete the orphaned key (bridge) in the right hand pane.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    The bridge program does not show up in add/remove programs now but I'm not sure if I have deleted all of the files from regedit. There is still a bridge file on the left hand side in regedit then on the right hand side there are 2 x items as follows
    default REG_SZ (value not set)
    uninstallstring REG_SZ rundll32.exe c:\windows\downloaded program files
    Do I need to delete these as well.

    Hi coach,

    If that is all that is left in that "folder" you can delete it in the left hand pane. This will have no noticeable effect, but if it makes you feel better. :)

    Thanks very much for your help Pieter.
    Is there any way I can find out where this came from and can I prevent it from coming back. Is it ok to delete the backup of the rdxie files.
    Coach.
