I dont think this is much to worry about,the aproposis obvioulsy just dead reg entries which will weed out over time!

Ad Aware-> Spybot or SpySweeper will catch these in time and clean them up!


As for this folder

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SBUtils

WindowEnhancer-> May be an entry in Add\Remove Programs!

This may have been overlooked by me in earlier post!

Just delete that folder and remove the entry from add\remove if it exist!

Also search the System for winex.exe<- Thats the file I think I missed!

O.K., I deleted the sbutils folder. Couldn't find any reference to the winex.exe file. And I'll stop worrying about the apropos entry in the registry.

I wouldn't have been so persistent if this was my or my son's machine because I'd be here checking on things before they got out of control, but this one goes back to my nephew who lives down the road a bit.

Guess we can wrap this up and declare victory! Thanks so much for all your help.

One more note... today I downloaded MS Antispyware and ran it. It found that apropos stuff plus two other things (SurfSideKick was one) and deleted them all. I also reset IE settings to default. I can now run Panda and get a totally clean report.
