Panda Scan found a dialer

by bglover51 / September 18, 2005 1:51 AM PDT

But I use a cable modem to connect to the internet.

I am always hesitant to remove anything from the registry (scares me) but will remove this if necessary.

It ID'd this as a dialer.bb, located at:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7CD1F456-8BDA-45ED-BC11-4B7340E05315}

Found the entry with regedit. Haven't deleted it yet. Or, would my registry scanner identify it and remove it (I use reg seeker)?

TIA

Craig

Craig, did you install Spyware Doctor before?

The same CLSID 7CD1F456-8BDA-45ED-BC11-4B7340E05315 is in the log file of the user and it seems added by Spyware Doctor v2

Try to go again to the said registry key using the registy editor then post what you find in the data value (right pane)

Hi Donna, I'm not up on my Spanish but

I do have Spyware Doctor installed and run it daily.

Glad I asked before deleting anything.

The Right Pane in Registry shows

(Default) Reg_SZ
ApplD Reg_SZ

Thanx for your help. (I asked originally because Panda Scans false positives are well known to me.)

Craig, looks like a false positive

You can send that log by Panda ActiveScan to PC Tools since you are PC Tools customer. Doing so will allow PC Tools to contact Panda and stop flagging their Spyware Doctor CLSID. That is if PC Tools confirmed that the said CLSID was added by their program, Spyware Doctor.

Yes, it is good idea to investigate/ask/research first before deleting anything.

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?
