Just a registry key entry such as this is NOT a big threat.
-> I'll take this challenge. A registry entry that acts like "code."
Also, give it a scan with Housecall and Free AVG AntiSpyware (both remove for free) and then tell us what issues you are trying to fix.
Hi i did a scan on my xp, home edition sp2 machine and this came up as a result of XoftspySE result found. I have been having major issues with windows, and I finally think this has been the cause all along. My prob. No way of removing it, and no online info on it. Please help; anything would be greatly appreciated it. None of the spyware and adware ultilies had been able to detect it till now. Threat level is severe and its a registry key(CLSID) Thanks.
This is a toolbar that changes the default homepage and default search engine.
