Registry Pieces

Used spybot and now I get messagegs about "somethng" attempting to load. The name shows only four square boxes. I unchecked the square box entries in the Msconfig so they don't load. Is there a Registry cleaner to remove the registry pieces that were left behind or should I just leave well enough alone?

Have you looked in Add/Remove programs for spyware installs...look for things that offer "shopping" something or other, or "weather" ...sounds like you have some "baddies" installed there. Try this online scan:
This is an excellent registry cleaner but am only suggesting you use the first screen for "remains" of uninstalls...www.jv16.org it is shareware but after using it you will buy it! Power Tools is name.
