I have scanned sevral times to get rid of spyware but I have one trojan.bho that will not go away.  I looked at it in the registry and tried to delet it and it will not let me delet the folder inside of HKey\CLASS\ROOT\CLSID\ec43e3fd-5c60-46ab-97d7-e0b85dbdd6c4 The folder under it is InprocServer32 and I tried to delet this folder 1st but it will not let me delete either.

The  "HijackThis" program should allow you to remove the rogue BHO without having to manually edit the registry.  If it won't delete because it is in use then the "MalwareBytes" program should be able to mark it for deletion and get rid of it or atleast kill the process so you can use HijackThis to remove it.

I have ran them many times in safe mode, regular mode, and also had to attache the hd to another pc to remove enough spyware and viruses to get it to accept each program.  I also ran them from the other pc that already had them installed.  So it is just this one registry entry that I can't remove. Is this entry the one that keeps adding the spyaware?

Not sure if this would have worked but I never thought of this so it is a great idea.  Thank you.
