Infected Registry Keys??

By techgeek05

  1. I installed and ran the Giant AntiSpyware program. I took care of the Ad/Spyware part but when I run a full system scan, it shows that I have 50+ infected registry keys. I'm not sure exactly what this means but it doesn't sound good. How can I remedy this problem? Any help would be appreciated!

    That just means that it the spyware programs left behind or new ones still exist, and you just delete them and your good too go. registry keys are just for directing windows to start it, and do its job (causing havoc).

    I would recomend saving a copy of your current registry before deleting any keys, just in case! :cool:

    Run either Adaware or Spybot S&D. Both will let you make a full registry-copy before they start. Then let them fix the evil-doers.
    Also have a look in my post here:
