Obstinate Registry entry

  VCR97 18:17 18 Dec 2004

I have an entry which derives from some malware which I removed some weeks ago. I've tried several times to shift this entry without success. It appears in HijackThis as

016-DPF: {AE9DCB17-F804-11D2-A44A-0020182C1446}-

HJT removes it but it returns at reboot. Regedit and RegSeeker also delete it but, again, it returns at reboot. (Regseeker doesn't find it on a scan; I have to search.)It's probably harmless on its own but I'd like to "get rid". Any ideas?

If it is XP, have you switched of system restore befpre deleting it.
The fact that it keeps coming back suggests that it might be in one of your restore points.

If you turn of system restore you will lose all your restore points.

I knew that I'd overlooked something obvious! Thanks Alan.
