    IOLO Event View

    Is there any way to remove the file "iolo App.evt" from the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\iolo App.evt" as well as the
    name "iolo Applications" from the Event Viewer.

    Yes, I have uninstalled all IOLO applications, searched and removed all disk files and folders from my hard drive, and searched for and removed all references to IOLO in the Registry.
    The single exception to this, is the File mentioned above, which I have been successful in deleting but it always comes back on the next boot.

    IOLO has been removed, but Event Viewer still records that it was used at some point in the past - that's what I take from your description.

    Clear the logs in Event Viewer and see if that removes the entry after a reboot.

    Also get "Autoruns" to verify that it is gone.

    For stubborn files, see MoveFile for a utility to help delete files at the next reboot.

    I'm not a newbie. I've had Autoruns installed for years.

    MoveOnBoot is also a good utility for that, but doing that doesn't solve my problem.
