Sorry for what may be a noob question, but I can't search for the needed terms with any way to prune the results...


In Hijack This a listing for a BHO with no name and no file is what? A item that was removed at some prior point and a registry entry still hangs around? Registry items for valid BHO like google toolbar?

Would there be any reason to NOT remove all these items? Should each of the items be checked out in regedit?

I see them listed a lot and curious what to do about them.

There really wasn't any specific item from a log. It was just a general question as in something with no name and no file what would that be?

I guess I don't really understand what these items are or how they could be anything without those values? If you need an example I can find one, but I didn't think that would be needed...

Let me know as I'm trying to learn about this new area of security. =)

There would be no reason not to remove. It could just be left overs from removed programs, although not necessarily malware it if just clutter.

Hope that helps.
