    Did you have McAfee VirusScan installed at any time, a search shows WiseCustomCalla.dll (VirusScan Config Utility) was a component.

    Hello DragonFan,

    The "Wise' installer often leaves something behind in the registry.

    Registry edits are generally unnecessary unless being helped with a malware infection.

    What is the operating system and how is the computer running?
