    IHHComponentActivator (?)

    A routine registry scan with CCleaner has turned up something new -- an item categorized as a "Missing Type Library Reference." The name of the item is:

    IHHComponentActivator

    The registry key begins with HKCR\Interface\ .....followed by a string of numbers.

    What little Google has to say about IHHComponentActivator is over my head. Does anyone know what this key is, and can I entrust its handling to CCleaner? (Am guessing it will be deleted.)

    Thanks for your help!

    There is reference to Sygate Personal Firewall, but those references are HHComponentActivator, not IHHComponentActivator.

    As always, thanks CLiNT.

    CCleaner does list the entry as "IHH...."



    I can't recall there ever having been a Sygate anything on my computer. A system search for "Sygate" comes up empty. (Perhaps it was a leftover from the HideMyAss VPN software I uninstalled a few weeks ago. If so, it's odd that CCleaner didn't find it till yesterday.)

    A mystery!

    Thanks again.

    The data "IHHComponentActivator" might also have something to do with ActiveX.

    What have you installed on the system since you last checked.

    some searching for you to do;

    IHHComponentActivator - Postscript

    Comments are closed for this old thread, but I wanted to say thanks to Clint.

    Clint, please accept my apology for having taken so long to respond to your post. A health crisis put my life on hold.

    The IHHComponentActivator problem vanished abruptly and mysteriously, with no intervention from me. Still! I'm grateful for your input. If the problem pops up again, I'll know how and where to start digging for a solution. Kind thanks for your help.

    The original thread was not locked, so I moved your postscript there (here).

    The thread wouldn't accept more comments this morning. I did try!

    Thanks for the help, Bruce.
