Can anyone advise how to completely remove traces of this from a PC. There is nothing in Add/Remove Progs and I deleted a ParetoLogic folder in Proramme Files. I still get a reminder window about the product on startup though. Presume something buried in the registry?

Have you checked msconfig > startup?

Thanks for the thought Maj and it is a good one that I havn't checked yet but if I find and uncheck it, doesn't that mean that there are files left still lurking in the registry?

Also try running CCleaner > Registry option. click here

There'll always be orphaned files left in the registry, unless you reinstall Windows, Legslip. Even using all the registry cleaners around wont get rid of them all, most of the time all they'll do is take up a little space, so don't worry about them. Just get rid of the popup you mentioned.

Thanks again Maj. What I am currently doing is running AVG Antivirus, then I will run Malewarebytes and after that, CCleaner, all with my broadband disconnected from the PC. Then I'll run 'em all again with the Bband connected as that seems to be when the problem starts again.

You could also check these registry keys, manually, Legslip:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run

Cheers Maj. Not a Reg Xpert. Know where to go but but am I looking at and what do I do when I get there? i.e.HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce Under Name I Have: Default Type: REG_SZ and Data: Value Not Set.

  MAJ 13:37 21 Feb 2010

That key is clear, nothing in there, Legslip. Check the other two I posted, if there's anything in there we go to the next step, if there isn't then just close the registry editor.

Thanks Maj. Before I got your last post I found this in one of my old queries. I replaced the printer name with Paretologic and think it may have done the trick as it found files/folders in the Reg and I have deleted. May have done the trick? Have run PC without Bband and all scans (AVG, Mwarebytes, CCleaner) show OK. Hae reconnected Bband and AVG shows clear and am currently running Mwarebytes.
