Thanks both of you. I have definitely pinned it down now to the torrent client, which has never had this before. I just did a lot of experimenting, uninstalling, re-installing, and it's always after opening the torrent that this HKEY thing is coming up. I even tried getting a fresh copy of the torrent and it still happened. It also happened on the original .exe that I have on my hard drive, so I don't know what this is. However, it only shows up as an issue on NoAdware. I did download Hijack This and ran it a couple of times in the course of my experimenting over the past hour or so. It doesn't show that HKEY problem at all. Neither does CCleaner or my virusscan program. It's only NoAdware. The other thing I noticed is that if I delete the file, it won't come back until after I reboot and then reopen the torrent. For example, on this current boot of my computer, I opened the torrent client, ran all the scans, deleted the file, and closed the torrent program. Then I reopened the client and ran the scan again -- nothing. It won't come back until I reboot. So, is that still the program or is there something else going on?
