    Hi there everyone,

    I recently tried to remove entries in my registry for Uniblu
    Spyeraser, but have been unable to do so. I get the "unable to delet
    all specified values". I even get this after enabling and signing on a
    admin AND running regedit as admin. I don't know how to get any mor
    admin than that.

    Can anyone tell me how I might go about getting rid of these entries?

    thanks,
    jso

    Why do you want to delete it? Are you having a problem?

    hi there Bob,

    The entries are associated with a malicious application that gives n
    traditional method of removal and fakes infection notices with na
    windows to purchase the application.

    An example entry is:
    There are four other keys in the same folder and all of them I a
    unable to remove through regedit while logged into admin and runnin
    regedit with admin privs

  4. Permissions, I'd say.

    I use the non-free registry editor "Registry Workshop", which makes it
    easy to try to change permissions of registry entries.

    Even with that, I haven't always succeeded in deletions, though...

    Perhaps when I failed, I was doing it from my personal Administrator
    account, rather than *the* Administrator account (sorry, I don't
    recall).
