I have at least 100 $NtUninstall folders in my c:/windows folder.

The dates range from 2003 to 3/7/09. Have these just quietly been accumulating over the years?

Also, this is the message I get whenever I start up my Dell (Dimension 4550): "Are you sure you want to add the information in c:\pav.reg to the registry?" Does this have anything to do with the many uninstall files?

Hi and welcome to geeks to go.

The $NtUninstall folders are intentional. They are the uninstalls for the 100+ microsoft updates. They are there in case you ever need to remove an update.

As for the pav.reg, I am not sure. It would be best we wait. It could be something left over, or malware related.

could you check and see if you have any of these files...
Search for these files ....
C:\pav.reg

C:\WINDOWS\System32\pavdr.exe

C:\WINDOWS\hhnt.exe

if you find any of those.... Please go to the malware forum Start HERE....

That will help you clean up 80 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then start a new topic in the MALWARE FORUM forum here...
