    Uninstalling hazard shield uninstalled residue

    I use XP Pro and I uninstalled "hazard shield" using "add/remove" programs and now when I boot the computer, I get the following error message and details -

    "Microsoft .NET Framework

    Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    The directory name C:\Utilities\Hazard Shield is invalid.

    See the end of this message for details on invoking
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    <configuration>

    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box."

    How do I resolve this?

    Start > Run > msconfig
    Click on the startup tab
    Look for a "hazard shield" entry and uncheck the box next to it if found.

    Start > Run > services.msc
    Look for any entry related to hazard shield and set the service to disabled if found

    I have already done that. There is no listing in Services. There is a listing in startup for "hasard shield tray" (hzr tray) but unchecking this does no good as it is rechecked upon startup.

    You then have a couple of options.

    Reinstalll hazard shield and the uninstall it with Revo Uninstall which will automatically search and clean the registry after a normal uninstall is done.

    Run Regedit and search for all instances of hazard shield or hazardshield. Back up the registry first just in case. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/window...ackupxpreg.htm

    Download CCleaner and run its registry cleaner deleting any errors it finds related to hazard shield. Use caution here as the cleaner in rare cases can cause system problems. I would create a System Restore point or a backup image before performing this step and maybe backup the registry.
