    Hi!

    Thank you for the replies.

    OK, I did get this problem solved by repairing the corrupted permissions for

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\LegitCheckControl.LegitCheck
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\LegitCheckControl.LegitCheck.1
    and all their sub-hives, one by one

    first taking the ownership for all of them for the Administrators' Group,
    and then giving Full Rights for them for the Administrators.

    This procedure wasn't too easy, because in the first place I didn't get them
    even opened at all, but, after some different trials got a message having the
    possibility to get in and change the permissions ... all this may have been
    having something to do with the fact, that all this support case was just due
    to a "light-level" Virus/Trojan infection on this macine.


    Best regards,

    Pete V.
