    Oh, btw, we just created fresh restore point and we deleted old restore points, so you don't have to worry about it.

    They must be the ones that are prompted for when using CCleaner - Regisrty I assusume.
    Code:
    
    
    they are Registry backups that CCleaner makes before deleting any registry mess.

    I just ran a complete scan of both C:\ and D:\ drives. D:\ was clean but C::\ had one warning and one detection in:
    C:\hp\bin\killit.exe

    If my memory serves me, this has always been in my computer since I've had it..

    I wonder if it's a program that needs to be in it..i'm confused now...LOL:haha:
    I did not quarantine this - shall I?

    It's a legit HP file. Leave it alone.

    thanx. I thought it was legit...

    What are the 44 "Warnings" I got on a Full Scan of Avira?
    They look like empty spots in the Registry to me..but I am not the expert.
    The log is huge..it shows everything on this machine!
