    Got XP Pro the other day and I think due to test and uninstall of AVG AV Free Ed., I have a registry entry that will not go away and it calls to an .exe to startup (which is no longer on any of three drives). I can erase it, disable it etc., but it always returns - almost instantly. Ideas how to stamp this out?

    Thanks, SG1 (Pat)

    Thanks - but said file is not listed there.

    ========================

    InnoSetupRegFile.0000000001,"C:\WINDOWS\is-GSV13.exe"" /REG"

    Said file from AV trial - I'm pretty sure - no longer exists on drive/s anywhere. But Reg. file calls it up or tries to, at ea. bootup. Annoying, to say the least.

    Hadi;

    It returns almost instantly after disabling it, or even after deleting it (via Code Stuff Starter or Startup Control Panel or even if I change or erase it in the Registry. But, all security apps say nothing's amiss on this PC - and I have a gazillion security apps., and try out more almost daily).

    Yes, I'm aware that it sounds like nasty behavior at work, here, but again I'm almost certain it was left over from the Grisoft's trial AVG app. Guess I'd better write them, to be sure it is one of their files mentioned in Registry.
