    hey

    I have XP and I run ad-aware and S & D spybot. im having trouble with something called Holistyc, spybot picks it up but cant remove. ad-aware doesnt see it at all. I saw on a site http://www.pestpatrol.com/PestInfo/h/holystic.asp

    that I should delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\moduleusage\c:/winnt/system32/preload.ocx

    but I only have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\moduleusage\c:/system32/preload.ocx

    is this the same thing? should I delete it? any help would be great. thank you

    Have you tried running both programs in Safe Mode, as discussed here

    Hope this helps...
