Windows 7: Pesky recurring window at start-up

22 Oct 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home, 64 bit

Hi Jacee,

Well, tried it but the window still pops up. We gave it a good shot. If you come up with another solution, let me know-I'm willing to try.

I have CCleaner Pro and have used the file fix and system cleaning, but nothing has changed. Other than the pop-up, the system works like a clock-no trouble with anything else.

While checking the web out, I came across another file cleaner that is equal to or just a little better than CCleaner Pro. It has multiple settings and different degrees of hard drive wipes. The cleaner is free but they ask for a donation. I used it already and it is fantastic. I'll give you the name: PrivaZer

Maybe its something you can use down the road. It has both a basic and advanced setting. Easy to use.

Thanks for your time and help. If you have anymore ideas let me know.

Boot into safe mode, then navigate to C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Local\Conduit\
and delete that folder ... reboot. If it popped-up again, then download DDS from one of these links:

  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.

Hi Jacee,

Thanks for your reply.

Early this morning, I stumbled into resolving the "pesky window pop-ups." What I did was opened CCleaner Pro, went to tools, opened and then opened the program start-ups. I found two "Conduit" pop-ups. I disabled them, closed out of CCleaner Pro, then I tested several programs; I then rebooted Windows. No pop-ups were showing-gone...yes, finally, they were gone. I then reopened CCleaner Pro, went back into the start-up programs, then deleted the two "Conduit" pop-ups. Finished. PC is back to normal.

Thanks for your help and time. I really appreciate it.

Have a nice day.:)
