    Did you look at all the info there? Bazooka


    Advice 6 - The Bazooka log
    If you are sure you have removed all items that are mentioned in the uninstall instructions, but that darn Bazooka scanner still report the threat, you can look in the Bazooka log to find out why Bazooka still nags about it. The log is actually not meant for the end-user and it is hard to interpret, but I think that it after all might offer some help.

    To look in the log, click the "Generate Log" button in the Bazooka dialog, save it on disk, open the log in a text editor, scroll down to "Result when scanning". The information there might offer some help

    Do you have AD-Aware? You could try the free version and see if it detects the guid.

    Hard to say if it is an error. Bazooka may scan differently than others.

    If you can't find it in the registry, I would say it is gone. If you aren't using Windows Media Player, I don't see how it could identify you.

    Maybe someone will come along with more info Rita.

    By the way, I found 877 guids on my system. I'm not going to worry though!:)
