Hey whats up people,this is my first post here so please excuse me if this is the wrong place to post this question.If so please redirect me to an appropriate site/forum.

Anyway...I was looking for an alternative to the google desktop's sidebar when i came across this "ricks sidebar" from this rickentendo dude on wincert.com.I downloaded it and it worked fine untill i tried setting up the weather gadget then i got a popup from threatfire telling me it just quarantined the sidebar.exe which supposedly was infected with a "trojan.win32.packed",so i checked out the details and it showed "registry value delete disallowed" under the quarantined win32 trojan.

Im not too experienced with messing around with the registry so i dont like messing around with it when i dont know exactly what im doing,so my question is howe do i go about removing this registry value?

Sure waiting for your feedback!

If you are not able to remove those culprits in normal mode. Try in Safe mode.

hello, registry clean tool such like CC clean can not remove trojan, it just can remove temporary files. youneed an anti-virus.
