I navigated to C:\doc and settings\Mark\local.application data\Microsaoft\outlook

there was no sub folder called outlook.pst as suggested by the virus scan.

I searched the C drive for *.pst files and surprisingly it found none when of course they must exist.

it looks like it is an orphaned registry entry.

download and run REGSUPREME 1.3

it will make a back up of everything it removes.

Blimey - this has found 230 'useless' file entries. The free registry checker I use never picks these up. Should I delete them all? I cannot see a reference to outlook though.
Interestingly enough - earlier on I scanned each sub folder starting from the bottom with my virus scanner. Even though when I scanned the whole C drive - it found this 'trojan' - when I did it folder by folder from the bottom up - each folder was clean! A bit of a mystery to me. As my vrus scan takes a long time to run - I will run a full HD scan again later tonight and see if it once again identifies a problem.

it's safe to remove everything that regsupreme finds. it makes a back up, just in case. :tazz:
