    Default t-timer FP

    Encountered and terminated RegCleanr in C:\PROGRAM FILES\REGCLEANER\REGCLEANR.EXE!

    This Was Antivir Removal Regcleanr
    T-timer broke the desktop shortcut without asking

    I also have MS RegClean installed (w98) no problem

    Are we having confusion with C-Net again?

    wyrmrider:

    Check out the following thread:

    Although no one reported TeaTimer terminating "Regcleanr.exe" there seems to be a similarity in the name "RegCleanr" in that thread and your problem with TeaTimer.

    Although dude2010 originally reported a problem with a detection for "Regcleaner" (thread title "Regcleaner - parasite/virus?!", they later indicated that the actual detection was for "RegCleanr":

    1. Switch SB to Advanced Mode
    2. Click on "Settings" (drop-down menu on your left)
    3. Choose "Ignore products"
    4. Find and activate "RegCleanr"

    There is a possibility that your thread and the one I cited are related to the same misidentification of "RegCleaner by Jouni Vuorio" as a problem.

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    I can confirm that. As MisterW also stated, this will be fixed with the next updated.
    Somehow I got the impression that there are at least a dozen apps named "Registry cleaner" or very similar
