Several days ago, I began getting this for every scan:

HKCR\.exe

(I deleted the tracking cookies including the flash cookies)

I thought this had been dealt with - is it really an error in the registry?

My system: Windows XP Pro, IE 8

Thank you.

Welcome to the SAS forum.

Update SAS by right clicking on the SAS tray icon and choosing "Check For Updates".

If the file in question re-appears with subsequent scans, then please post the SAS scan log for further analysis.

1. I did a complete scan earlier tonight in safe mode, and there was only 4 cookies found...nothing else.

2. I manually updated a few minutes ago (my SAS checks for updates every 8 hours).

3. Most recent scan: Please let me hear from you; this is really worrisome. Thank you.

No need to worry, as the registry item found isn't an infection.

Was the item checked off when SAS found it? If not, go ahead and put a check beside the item and allow SAS to fix it.

If it still appears, then please submit a Customer Support Request and refer them to this thread.

------------------------------------------------

I apologize, Seth, I do not know what is meant by "checked off"; I also do not know how to put a check beside the item.

Thanks. I see "Enable System File Checker" in Repairs tab; that it?

You're welcome.

When the scan completes, there will be a box to the left of HKCR\.exe. If there isn't a check-mark in that box, then left click on it and the check-mark will appear. Without that check-mark, SAS will not remove/repair the item found.

Seth,

I was just making sure I understood what you were saying; yes of course, the checkmark is always there.

Every time I scan though, I get the same results, so apparently SAS is not removing/repairing it.

Is next step posting to the link you gave for a "ticket"?

Yes.

I was getting this same message when I did a scan. It would not go away. My system was slow to boot and it was still getting infected by trojans.

I noticed the Windows messenger Icon in my system tray. I didn't remember installing the program.

Removing Window messenger solved all my problems.

Hope this helps.
