When logging on or starting up laptop, an error message appears that the regsvr.exe was not located. In reading another posting, I followed the advice and did a search for this file. I found the following:

Name In folder size Type
REGSVR32 C:\documents and settings\Albert 30kb application
REGSVR32.EXE-25EEFE2F.PF C:\WINDOWS\prefetch 62kb pf file REGSVR32 C:WINDOWS\system32 12kb application
REGSVR32 C:WINDOWS\softwaredistribution\download\.... 12kb application

The posting stated that this should only be found in the system32. Should I remove the others?? Or at least the sofwaredistribuion\download....??

If your spelling is correct, regsvr.exe is NOT a legit file.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
