yeah go ahead and delete the files. All its doing is deleting the corrupted registry files. If you feel paranoid it asks you if you want to save, and you can save the files before.

ok, just did that.

however, I did not clean the files under Advanced (i.e. old prefetch data, menu order cache, etc). should I go ahead and clean those as well?

You could restore Windows to a previous state, so if there is a rogue in your pc it would be inactive. Then you could start in safe mode, scan everything with a spyware and delete what it finds. Afterwards, clean the register with CCleaner.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

If u have a rootkit, malwarebytes would pick it up. I've used it forever and it finds EVERYTHING. I'm assuming it's updated to the latest definitions.

malwarebytes has never picked up a rootkit when I've ran it. although, my girl has ran it and has never payed attention to that sort of thing.

gonna run it again

I'm using Avira Antivirus and whenever I run a scan, there's always at least one "hidden object" that remains.

Detections
Suspicious Files
Warnings
Objects Scanned
Hidden Objects

thats what the right side of the Avira scan box looks like

ok

after a long process with microsoft support, the issue is resolved.

they had someone remotely access my computer and then the rep did something (plus restarted my computer) and everything seems resolved now.

I hope everything is resolved...
