Hi All I run windows XP Pro with SP2. I run CCleaner on a daily basis and all of a sudden I have three issues that CCleaner can not fix. The issues are as follows: (1)ActiveX/Com Issue HKCR\MailFileAtt. (2)ActiveX/Com Issue HKCR\Mapitvbx.Object (3)ActiveX/Com Issue HKCR\Mapitvbx.Object1 CCleaner tells me it has fixed the issues but they just keep returning. My PC seems to be working ok but I would like to get rid of them. Would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
Is this actually a problem? I wonder if this may be glitch in ccleaner in that it is somehow trying to remove files which are in use or needed. Just out of curiousity I'm away to try my ccleaner now and see what it says, I presume its the registry part of ccleaner you're using is it?
Totally-braindead it is the registry part I am using I have even reinstalled it with no luck. Skyver I have Yahoo and Google toolbar installed but I have uninstalled them without success. Thanks both for your time.
Both yahoo and google are benign obviously, if you're really desperate to remove the `problems` load RegEdit (start menu/run, type `regedit`) and navigate to HKEY Current User/Local Machine, MailFileAtt or similar and look for anything unfamiliar - you can export the `key` before deleting if you're not sure and double click the saved .reg file to re-enter it if removal causes problems.
Thanks for your reply Skyver I think I will leave well alone as I dont feel confident going into the registry. What really bothers me though is I did a free scan on bug doctor and it found the activeX files and said they were high risk. They wanted cash to remove them.
Social engineering, ignore /anything/ that asks for payment to fix a problem. There are always benevolent and talented people providing free tools to do a better job, if the `problem` needs fixing at all.
