    When I ran CCleaner version 618 with the registry scan feature this AM I got the following:

    Unused File Extension TacOnlyOne - HKCR\TacOnlyOne

    This has occurred several days in a row so it regenerates it self.

    SAS and Nod 32 report nothing.

    Has anybody here got a clue as to what this is?

    Who cares
    A google search reveals that it could be a rogue.

    See if there are the following processes and if yes terminate them:


    MWLauncher.exe
    Install1.exe

    Find and delete these files:

    MWLauncher.exe
    Install1.exe


    Search for and Remove the following MalWarrior registry keys:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TacOnlyOne\MalWarrior
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adsl Software Limited\MalWarrior 2007
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\TacOnlyOne\MalWarrior

    Thank you. I have searched for the exe's mentioned and they are not on my set up.

    A search with jv16 PowerTools 2008 for these keys and programs shows they are NOT present.

    I do have Lavasoft's digital lock SW and the registry search showed the entry relates to that SW. Lava must be using their encryption software.

    I will run full Nod32 and SAS scans to be "sure".
