I'm at a friend's house, and she has RegistryBot installed - and I can't seem to get rid of it. Perhaps any of you could help me out?

Is it listed in Add/Remove in the Control Panel?

If it is, do you get a error message trying to remove it?

Yes, it's in Add/Remove, and yes, it gives me an error when I try to uninstall it. Can I just delete the directory?

It wouldn't delete all by itself, but I managed to get rid of it by using a program called Unlocker.

ah, unlocker.

The reason was because the program was running in the backround and you couldn't remove it because it was already in use.

Good work :whistling:

Yeah, the reason I provided this information is so someone can search for "RegistryBot" in the future and know how to deal with it ^^.

Yeah nice job :whistling:

If you are looking for a registry cleaner I would have to go with CCleaner.

Download CCleaner from here.
