    lameme

    I have an entry in my registry called lameme. I googled it and some think that it has todo with instllsheild and others a virus to do with a dialer, So what is the take on this here?
    Thanks John

    Re: lameme

    I did a search in my reg and found no such animal.

    Do you have or DId you have NortonSymantec products installed in your system?
    If my memory serves me right, there was such a leftover after I uninstalled Norton. Symantec buries itself in so many corners of the registry that just uninstalling it via AddRemove, still leaves dregs and bits and pieces around that sometimes re-enable themselves, even if they seem to do nothing.

    From the horse's mouth.....

    InstallShield 7 creates this registry key during the Symantec AntiVirus installation. The C:Program FilesCommon FilesInstallShieldDriver7Intel32IDriver.exe file writes this key during the Symantec AntiVirus pre-installation tasks.

    nope.
    I did a complete restore last week. I gave up on Norton when the license expired and went completely to ZA Security Suite

    HOW did you do a "complete restore"?
    See Doc's post above.

    Re: lameme

    Actually, I meant, did you just do a "repair reinstall" or a "clean" new install by wiping the old partition away and then installing?
    A "repair" reinstall would renew your OS but leave all of the old junk from other apps still intact, so no real cleaning occurs.

    Re: lameme

    John,

    I would go to the Symantec site and look for the utility and knowledge base article on how to COMPLETELY remove all Symantec products. ( not just uninstall them ) Big difference in the two methods.

    I haven't had Norton on here for at least a year or so, and there isn't anything in the registry either. I did a search anywhoo on symantec's web site and nothing came up.
    Thanks John
