    just a small query.
    I d/l'd the trial of TH and while considering my options went to uninstall it.
    there is a 317kb .dll file left over in the original installation folder which cannot be erased or deleted... " in use by another programme".

    what is this?
    Perhaps just me!!
    Probably just some fidget that will go away when i reboot but:
    I dont recall giving permission for anything to be left behind when I installed.

    Is the leftover DLL named Contmenu.DLL? This cannot be removed during the ADD/REMOVE process if THGuard was active at the time you did the ADD/REMOVE.

    Just reboot, then use Windows Explorer to manually remove the entire TrojanHunter folder.

    Longboard, if you are still not able to delete after the reboot, then use Killbox - #17 on the list and use the delete on reboot option to remove the TH folder. :)
