Help with Spybot S&D

by grj712 / May 30, 2005 8:40 AM PDT

I ran Spybot S&D today and when I clicked on ''fix problems'' it fixed them all but two, asked if it can remove it at next start-up. Okay, that's occured before and like the other times I clicked ''Okay''. But this time it didn't remove the items when I restarted.
These are the items,
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1560755739-3258744846-2224805313-1003\Software\Microsoft\DirectInput\MostRecentApplication\Id!=
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1560755739-3258744846-2224805313-1003\Software\Microsoft\DirectInput\MostRecentApplication\Name!=
Ad-Aware didn't detect this, either did MSantispyware.
I have Windows XP Home SP2 on my HP Pavillion.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Gary.

for the quick response and for the info. For now I think I'll just let it be, seeing that it's not a threat.

it and exclude it from future scans if you'd like and that way you won't see it every time you scan . You can always change that back at a later time.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
