Windows 7: zhpcleaner finds one file, then repair does not remove...

zhpcleaner finds one file, then repair does not remove...

Over the last two days, ZHPCleaner is finding one file to remove (Superfluous.Temporary.Empty), then when repair is run, it is getting stuck at the same place (see pic below). Yesterday, I did a reset, ran zhpc and the same thing happened - same place - 96% file #30. Powered down, ran zhpc, same thing. This morning, same thing. It looks like it's still running, the green progress bar shimmers like it's working, but it's stuck - X to close won't work, exit does not work, cancel - same thing. I close it using windows task manager (end process). I've had ZHPCleaner installed for more than a week now, and it has found and removed (repair) files successfully.

it looks like a hijack or some sort maybe the registry keys are in use by a trojan or virus i would use the windows repair tool from tweaking dot com do a scan and let it do it thing to me dont worry about it it depends what software you got on your pc and if you been uninstalling things and leaving traces behind that what could be the problem my best best do a system restore to earliest time if that fails use tweaking repair you got nothing to lose!!
