    Hello, I am having some issues with both the Roings engine (I have tried many things to get rid of this thing and all have proven unsuccessful) and the AIM virus (which I think I have gotten rid of, I just want to double check). I am running Spybot and SpywareBlaster. Here is my Hijack this log:

    Then reboot.
    Could you let us know what problems you are having with roings?

    Regards,

    Thank you so much for your help. Basically the problems that I have been having with Roings were this: At first, my computer was basically inoperable as the CPU was always running at 100%. I was able to delete several files that I felt had something to do with the problem. Then I ran Spybot and Spyware Blaster. After that, the computer basically began to behave like normal again. However, occasionally, I will be attacked by a round of pop ups and my internet speed slows down dramatically. During these fits, also most other windows have trouble opening. I also continually have this Roings engine on my Add/delete programs list.

    After doing what you reccomended, the Roings engine is still on the programs list. The computer seems to be acting normally, though. Any advice?

    Hi caalex83,

    When you say it is on the programs list, do you mean it is listed under Add/Remove Software or do you see it running somewhere?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi caalex83,

    Click Start > Run > type or copy & paste regedit > OK
    In the Registry editor navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and delete the orphaned key in the right hand pane.

    Always backup your registry before making manual changes. In XP the easiest way is to make a Manual Restore Point.

    Regards,

    Pieter
