ScanRegistry / Scanregw.exe

File Name: Scanregw.exe
Status: ScanRegistry should not be running at startup. It is likely a virus, spyware, trojan, or some other sort of malicious program. Use a virus scanner, and/or spyware removal tool to remove it.
Additional Info: Added by the STATOR WORM! Not to be confused with the legitimate ScanRegistry entry - which is a vital Windows file. The executable "Scanregw.exe" is located in %windir%System (where %windir% is the Windows directory - C:Windows or C:Winnt). Runs from the registry RunServices key as opposed to the Run key
