    The FunWebProducts registry entries are in common areas to all profiles, removing them from within one profile should also remove them from all others.

    I would first try to track down and uninstall the software via (Add/Remove) Programs in Control Panel, once done, reboot and then scan again for remnants, CCleaner should be enough: http://www.funwebproducts.com/uninstall.html

    When you ran Malwarebytes, did you place a check next to all the items it found and click on delete?

    Hi Satrow....No indication of FunWebProducts in either Control Panel (Add/Remove) programs or CCleaner list of programs....Guess I'll have to use the uninstall link you provided.....Will report back if further questions/problems......Thanks again for all your help...

    Then rerun Malwarebytes, check everything it finds, click on delete to remove the infection.

    There's no infection, Jerry, just a leftover in the Registry and some empty folders.

    You're right Andy. It still would be a good idea to clean it up to prevent it from showing on future Malwarebytes scans even though it shouldn't affect PC performance.

    Satrow and jwitalka.....I think you're saying---I don't have to D/L and run the FunWeb Un-installer from the link you (Satrow) provided....Right....???.....The only thing I need to do is (after running a new MWB scan)---- have MWB remove the items.....Right....???

    Please clarify....Thank you

    Yes, it looks like the items (empty folders: C:\Program Files\FunWebProducts\Installr * and Registry entry: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext \PreApproved\{1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47a3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} ) can be safely removed manually or via MBAM, without leaving anything behind.

    Hi
    To remove unwanted programs etc. I use a tool like IObit uninstaller.
    It can scan the registry for leftfovers the normal uninstall programs don't remove.

    Hi,

    I can only endorse what Clint says about not messing in the Registry unless you really know what you’re doing. Otherwise you will most likely cause many more problems than you solve.

    Although CCleaner is one of the few clean-up tools I recommend and even though its Registry backups usually do work, that will only apply if you actually managed to get the system started again!

    If you must dabble with the Registry cleaning section of CC never tick the box for ‘Missing/Shared DLLs’ as removing DLLs that are supposedly no longer required is a classic way to throw a spanner in the works. Other sections to beware of are: Unused file extensions, ActiveX and class issues, Type libraries, Fonts. For those who are brave enough to proceed with the other sections, it is best to only tick one box at a time (to reduce the number of ‘problems’ found by the scan) and then only tick to remove entries found for programs you are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN have been previously uninstalled.

    A far better way to keep your Registry, and application data folders, shipshape is to do your uninstalling with the free version of Revo Uninstaller – but it’s important to only set it on ‘Moderate’. Sadly, the free version of Revo only works on 32bit programs but it’s much better than just using the manufacturer’s un-installer – you’ll find uninstalling something like McAfee or AVG with Revo a bit of an eye-opener!

    Remember the Golden Rule: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
