Start/run regedit, navigate to that key (it's period - tc3). Click on it,
then on file/export and save a copy to the desktop. Then delete the key. See if it effects anything for few days/weeks. If not, then delete the copy. If it cases problems, remerge the file by double-clicking it.


I suspect that your antivirus/antitrojan program inserted that extension as a way to mark suspected trojans for later removal. What that is telling you is that files ending in .troj are trojan files

Hi gerryf, Cranky here.

I Exported and copied 2 of them to desktop then deleted both from reg.
Will let you know if I have any trouble with them being deleted. I will leave on
desktop for a couple of weeks or till I have trouble with them.

(1) - trojfile
(1) - tc3

Like Arnald says (I'll be back) !!!

Thanks. Have a good day. :tazz:
