How can I uninstall it?
Look in C:\RegProt you will see an uninstal.exe click it.
Nope. REGPROT.CFG and REGPROT.EXE are the only two files in the program folder (C:\Program Files\RegProt).
Here in XP I have RegProt uninstall in Add/Remove programs. Did you check?
It's registry key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Uninstall
That's right: you may have an entry called simply "Uninstall" in Add/Remove programs, and that's the one you'll want.
Hmmm, that was sloppy thinking on my part.
Even if you do have the uninstall string, it will point to a non existent uninstal.exe in your RegProt folder, if I understand you right.
You may just want to install the program on top of itself in order to re-install the missing files.
That's the simplest way.
Talking about RegProt. Tony what do you think of it. I have tried to find
stuff about it this week but it is hard to find. It seems like a good idea.
But need some re-assurance.
It's an excellent idea. It may not offer the much more complete protection that something like RegRun will, but then again it's freeware.
As it doesn't rely on a database, but simply monitors certain registry locations for changes, it will even recognize totally new baddies that try to register themselves to start up as Windows loads.
What it should IMHO monitor, but doesn't, is the Startup folder.
But I think it's a very useful extra layer of protection.
I guess you mean this one (in Dutch):
In English something like this:
As far as I know you could use FileChecker from Javacool to watch that folder.
You can add a whole folder to it to watch.
But I’d better leave that to Javacool
