You do have Sygate personal Firewall. What I would do is uninstall Sygate thru your add/remove program. Then I would reinstall it. That should clear up that error.

you can download it again here:

Sygate


Lets try to get that reg entry:

Please download WebRoot SpySweeper from HERE (It's a 2 week trial):
  • Click the "Free Trial" link on the right - next to "SpySweeper for Home Computers" to download the program.
  • Install it.
  • When you open the program, it will prompt you to update to the latest definitions.
  • Please do so, then click "Sweep Now".
  • Click the "Start" button.
  • When it's done scanning, click the "Next" button.
  • Make sure everything has a check next to it, then click the "Next" button.
  • It will remove all of the items found.
  • Click "Session Log" in the upper right corner, copy everything in that window.
  • Click the Summary tab and click "Finish".
  • Paste the contents of the session log you copied into your next reply.
Let me know how that works.

Thanks,

:tazz:

Scroll down to

Registry Search Tool
Search the Windows Registry for input string and display results (easier than repeatedly hitting the F3 key in RegEdit).

Script revised 13 Dec 2001 to work with Windows XP and Windows 2000.

And download this program :tazz:




Open the RegSearch folder and double click RegSearch.vbs. Allow it to run.

enter YourSiteBar

RegSearch will "disappear" but it is actually searching the registry for that entry.

Copy and paste what it finds into a Notepad file.

Ok, I knew it was on here:

REGEDIT4
; RegSrch.vbs © Bill James

; Registry search results for string "YourSiteBar" 7/14/2005 12:41:57 AM

; NOTE: This file will be deleted when you close WordPad.
; You must manually save this file to a new location if you want to refer to it again later.
; (If you save the file with a .reg extension, you can use it to restore any Registry changes you make to these values.)


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\YourSiteBar]

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3604066679-1335785905-2803185579-1005\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit]
"LastKey"="My Computer\\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\YourSiteBar"

There we go :tazz:

Back up your registry first.

Go to Start > Run - type:

regedit

Click OK.

When you get into the registry, on the leftside, click to highlight My Computer at the top. Then go up to "File > Export" Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch. Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files", then save it as backup to a convenient location. Remember where you put it (I don't recommend putting it on the desktop) This is so the registry can be restored to this point should anything be deleted by accident or something else happens. It may take a minute. Just let it go until it's done.
