Can not delete iPend from Registry

First, thank you for you assistance with my previous posting regarding Look2Me removal. I was able to remove it but have been trying to remove ClientMan which as also infiltrated my system. I have tried Spybot, Adware, Highjack This as well as the manuel removal instruction provided by Kephyr (in Safe Mode as well regular startup). I was able to remove all entries from the registry except for the following two:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\iPend
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iPend

They are removed from the registry until I reboot.

Any assistance will greatly be appreciated.

Thanks for the link.
I did not have the files they spoke about particularly the ClientMan folder in my Programs folder so I was unable to determine the X values to use to delete the named files in DOS.
I already removed the registry keys except the iPend folder
The main problem I have seems to be that I am unable to delete the iPend folder from the Registry. If I open Task Manager and delete Explorer (with registry edit open) it will let me delete the iPend folder and my computer seems to run fine until I reboot and then the iPend folder is there and the computer runs sluggish and there is regular hard disk activity.
Any other help would be appreciated.
Thanks again.

I guess, there is ONLY one solution left and that is

Download and run HijackThis - get it here:

http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/


Unzip, double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Click: "Save Log" (generates: "hijackthis.log")

Next, HijackThis | Config [button] | Misc Tools [button]
Click: Generate StartupList log [button] (generates: "startuplist.txt")

Next, go to the link below.

http://www.wilderssecurity.com/ - and look for:

Browser Hijacks and Spyware Problems > adware, spyware & hijack cleaning

post your log in there. Pls. put your HijackThis in its OWN folder - so all backups stay together and are NOT scattered around on your desktop.
Pls. also state what you already have done to clean up.

Finally got a chance to do the things that you suggested and I just ran Adaware and SPybot and it seems that I finally got rid of the two registry keys.
Thanks for all your help.
