Cannot find or remove seClean.Dll registry file

Q: Cannot find or remove seClean.Dll registry file

Ok, I recently fomratted my hard drive on my laptop due to virus contracted from "facebook". To make a long story short, a few valuable files I had to save I transfered and re-insstalled when I re-installed windows Vista on my laptop. I down loaded the important files I'dsaved but DIDNOT clean them with webroot which Ialso installed when I re-installed Vista OS. Now I cannot download any software (or install any new software) due to error messages I get. a couple error messages are "not initialized properly" or "accesss denied "The persistent error message that shows over and over is "seClean.Dll not recognized" or needs to be re-installed. I tried several .DLL cleaners with no help. Perfect Optimizer can't even down load and I paid for a years subscription to that software. This seClean.DLL file is hidden or itis masked behind one of the windows/system32 registry files. HELP, how does one REMOVE this pesky seClean.DLL file when it is not shown (only persist on installation) and no software can be downloaded to even fix the problem?RCMCEdit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due to the absence of malware logs. ~ Animal

Preferred Solution: Cannot find or remove seClean.Dll registry file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I asked this question to the PCMover team, but I haven?t got any competent answer or solution. However, the question is related to how the Windows registry works. This is what happened:
1. I had performed an In-Place upgrade from XP to Win8, so I got the Windows.old folder.
2. I had transferred many of the XP applications onto the Win8 machine, using PCMover.
3. Recently, I launched PCMover again to transfer more applications. It went past the ?[Transfer] Setup? screen/stage, where is asked me about the location of Windows.old. Then it got to the ?Analyze PCs? screen/stage. That means PCMover accepted that
location of Windows.old.
4. During the analysis stage, PCMover stopped responding (crashed).
5. I re-launched PCMover, but this time, on the ?[Transfer] Setup? screen/stage, it gave me this error:
ERROR: "The registry is already loaded for this image. Remove the virtual machine or use another image prefix."
It is obvious that PCMover tries to build a virtual machine image, but it cannot, because there is another one with the same name/prefix. Who had created that?? Obviously, PCMover itself in its previous session that went wrong. No other application was
run between the 2 attempts! PCMover seems unable to cancel the previous image and create it again fresh.
Although my problem is specific, my question goes beyond PCMover itself:
Where can I find a virtual machine "image"... Read more

A:How to find in and how to remove a virtual machine from the registry?

First I'd try rebooting the PC, then if that doesn't make a difference, it'd be better to ask the makers of PCMover.

When i run norton win doctor it reports that the key, "CLSDID\{117A62F-05D2-11D1-83FC-00A0C9089C5A}\InprocServer32" refers to a missing file, "C\WINDOWS|system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash6.ocx." None of the repair options work in Norton Win Doctor. I can not delete the key from my registry. I have searched for the folder "Macromed" on my hard drive but it is not found. From what I can tell this is an old version of the Adobe Flash Player. Any ideas as to how I can fix/remove this key. Im simply a yard man and out of ideas.

Last night out of the blue my friend's lenovo laptop (core 2 duo, 2GB RAM, Windows Vista Basic) began freezing at startup. I tried running system restore from the Lenovo Care Rescue and Recovery software included and after that began getting a blue screen on startup saying:

The registry cannot load the hive (file):
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

Then the computer tries to reboot only to return to the blue screen.

Any ideas what I can do, short of restoring the computer to factory conditions?

So I have been fighting that antimalware doctor thing for the past couple of hours.
I've deleted all of it's files/registry key infiltrations. I'm down to the last one. The program initiates as soon as I start up and log into my account, so by playing around with my system configuration settings, I have deduced with almost certain accuracy the key that is causing the program to run every time I log in.

The problem is, this key won't be deleted...
I hit edit > delete, but as soon as I click somewhere else and back to the run folder, it is there again. I've tried deleting it and rebooting with the same results.

I know that the default factory settings are saved in "C:\Windows\repair".
So if I forget my password then which registry file should I replace from "C:\Windows\repair" to "C:\Windows\system32\config" to set my password as nothing and also avoid losing my data.

I remember some one told me that the windows logon password is saved in SAM and SECURITY...or is it any one of them.

If this method is successful then does it apply on Windows Vista and Windows 7 equally well?

A couple of days ago, i set my computer for a 'Administrator User Account login/w password' before windowsXP would boot. The next time i went to start up windows,either i forgot the correct password or the correct password would not work,nevertheless i could not get by the Administrator user to get windows started. After fooling around,somehow i got a user log in and got in without any password.

Everything is fine except i decided to do a full reformat(im experienced). Instead of getting my computers reformat page, i got the following:

"stop:c0000218 (registry file failure)the registry cannot load the hive file...
\systemroot\system32\config\security or its log or alternative it is corrupt,
abscent, or not writeable"

I did a system restore,no luck.

Again everything seems fine except trying to do a reformat. I fiqure sooner or later the problem will show up elsewhere if i dont take care of it now.

amy comments?

Hey guys,

I've got a computer here that has Cryptor on it. I have used Malware Bytes, AVG & trendmicro online scan to remove as much as possible. In order to get the anti-virus software on the computer I disabled several services that were reloading .exe's that were killing the virus scanners and a number of additional peripherals like recognizing pendrives. I would just format the drive but the company I work for would prefer we not lose the information off this machine so I am trying to clean it up. The disabled services are as follows: afisicx, mabidwe, noytcyr, OpcEnum, roytctm, tdydowkc & wsldoekd. I wanted to check with you guys but I am pretty sure...are any of these legitimate services?

I recently uninstalled Windows SP3 RC1 from my computer and reverted back to Windows SP2 through the use of Projekt (Project) Dakota. http://www.theatticnetwork.net/

Before uninstallation though, one of my siblings had run this script to update to Windows SP3 RC2. I do not want to install the newest RC2, as I'm now waiting for a final release. I changed my Windows Update Settings to download but to not install, as it was already downloaded from yesterday.

Is there anyway to remove the already downloaded but not installed update for Windows SP3 RC2, and is there anyway to remove the script (that tells the computer to download SP3 RC2?)

On my windows XP machine, I created a registry export file and verified the contents.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Hamlog]
    (no content)
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Hamlog\ToolTips]
   (long delimited string - 1059 lines, 49000+ total characters)

On my windows 7 machine, I imported the registry file and the system responded that the restore was successful.
However, the registry was *not* updated

My only recourse would be to write an application that processes the .reg file and xfrs data to the registry via "Save" operation.
But rewriting my own replacement for the Registry Import code seems ridiculous.

I ran CCleaners registry cleaner function and created a backup. File size of the backup is 59 KB
I then exported my registry file using regedit. File size of that backup is 305 MB
Anyone know why exporting the registry is so much bigger (about 5,000 times as big)?

A:Export registry file vs CCleaner's registry backup

It appears that the backup that CCleaner made was only of the entries that it deleted, rather than the whole thing.
If you want a solid registry backup that you can also restore to an unbootable machine use RegBak. Very good recovery tool to have on board.

A very long time ago, I had a user account for me and one for one of my friends. After a while, he didn't need to use my computer anymore, so I deleted his account, through the control panel's users option. He had downloaded something called Beam!2D and it shows on my Add/Remove programs. I try to do the add/remove and it will not remove it. I can see the path of where the program is supposedly installed, but the thing is that it's under the c:/Documents and settings for my friend and that account doesn't exist, so there is no folder.

It's taking 19,992mb and 19,923mb, because there are two instances of the program. How can I uninstall something that technically doesn't really exist? I don't want to restore my computer if I can avoid it.

I rescently found a net.net trojan on my Lenovo Thinkpad, running Vista. I quickly disabled it in the startup list, where it was called "net". In system configuration (msconfig), I found the program file (C:\Windows\system32\net.net) and deleted it. I then found the registry location (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) but when I looked for it in the registry, it wasn't in that file. I assumed that meant I got rid of it, but "net" is still in the startup list. I haven't had any problems, but it bothers me that its still in the startup list. Should I be concerned? and if so any suggestions on how to find it so I can delete it?

Hello everyone,

Firstly I would like to say that this seems like a swell enough forum as is and I am frankly out of ideas. About a year ago I had backed up a rather large series of files under one name for my roommate who was in the process of doing some "spring cleaning" on his computer. Fast forward to now and he is out of Hard-drive space damn near and has been unable to find the reserve file himself. Below is the directory under which I named and saved the around 200gb file of games and old-ROTC documents. Regardless the file needs to be found and even after un-hiding all files from the control panel, I have yet been able to locate it. It would seem to be simple enough, one would think that you could see the file name sitting above Program Files but it is not. Any one have any ideas, we would rather not have to reformat/ system restore if we can avoid it.


A:File path error/ Cannot find file directory/file itself

I used a software called TreeSize which shows the size of all folders on the disk. Thinking that the Windows OS is around 18gb, a 200gb files should really stick out with TreeSize.

Logged in as User , ran several install shields to install couple of related programs and applications that fomr a Video analytics system on the PC .
Typically there will be a registry hive with several sub hives and keys but with the main group titled Citilog

I have installed this software on a 100+ XP's and it always produces this Registry hive in the same place HkeyLocalMachine /software/Citilog 100% of the time this hive/keys key could always be found using reg.edit from the User in which the programs were installed.

i recently installed the same program on 7 Win7Pro PC's that had 1 Admin, 2 users member of Administrators only .
I ran install shields from User1 on all 7 PC's . The HKeyLocalmachine/software/Citilog registry hive is nowhere in this Users registry or even in the Admin registry or User2 registry but all programs are working . I can do a Search registry using Citilog as search term and I will get several smaller keys form around other parts of the registry but I never see the main Registry "folder" Citilog .. any ideas on how i could find it ?

Just cloned an ailing drive for a customer. The new drive works fine - no problem.

Just one small issue: My customer had originally bought his PC second-hand and he'd like to remove all traces of the previous owner's name from the new hard drive.

My question: Is there a registry app that makes a simple job of finding and replacing all registry instances of say, George, with Harold?

Obviously, I can do this manually, and have done in the past. But it was a tedious job. If such an app exists as I've described above, I'd like to know about it :--))

Thanks in anticipation....

PS - It would be helpful if you're able to suggest something that you KNOW works, rather than an app that you haven't personally tried. I say this because there are several progs such as 'New Owner' which purport to change the owner's name, but in actuality only change a few instances of the entry instead of ALL.

I found 2 Key entries under HKey_Current_User/Software/Jasc/Paint Shop Pro 7 and HKey_Users with 38 Key subfolders under each. These subfolders include names like ColorPalette, Histogram Window, Image Processing Filter, Layer Palette, Selection Tools, Settings, StyleBackground.Tool10001, StyleForeground.Tool10001, TextureBackground.Tool10001, TextureForeground.Tool10001, Tip, (10 folders named) ToolBarState-Bar0 to -Bar10, ToolOptionsDialog, and TransparencyGrid. Many of these things are found in the program: Histogram Window, Style Background and Foreground, Texture Background and Foreground, Transparency Grid and more. Note that these Keys are under "Software". The wierd thing is that I haven't installed Paint Shop Pro 7 yet. I did transfer some Tutorials, Tubes, Plug-ins and Tips, and the "Getting Started Guide" files from the old hard drive. Anyone have any idea where these Keys came from?

Ok, so I've got a new HDD, and I've got it in as a secondary at the moment. I'm tranfering music and important data and such. I was wondering though about how to transfer registry files that I need. I have a couple programs that I do not have the CD's nor registration codes anymore, so I was figuring on copying the folder to the new HD... Only problem is I have no idea which registry files I need to move.

The programs are:
Wacraft 3/Warcraft 3 the frozen throne
World of Warcraft

Any help is appreciated

I recently did a change of the Computer Name (Control Panel - System - Computer Name - Change) shortly after setting up a new XP Pro machine, and am concerned over the fact that I still see many instances of the old name in the Registry.

I am now seeing where that may actually be posing a problem, too: Norton Anti-Virus is supposed to use the item in XP's Scheduled Tasks to scan drive C: once a week, but I noticed that since that name change it stopped working. When I look in the properties of the Scheduled Task, it has in the field for "Run as" the string [oldcomputername]\Administrator". When I try to change it to the new computer name, it lets me edit it but as soon as I hit OK or Apply it goes right back to the old entry! I've even tried deleting the Task and creating a brand new one using Norton's interface, yet it still comes up with the old computer name there!

I'm not really sure where that's being kept, but I assume it's in the Registry.

For this reason and as a general maintenance step, I want to go through the Registry and do a global Find-and-Replace to change all instances of the old computer name to the new one.

Is that even advisable in the first place and, if so, what utility would I want to use?


A:Find-and-Replace in XP Registry

I don't know of any Windows Supplied utilities. FWIW, I've never bothered to search out the old names when I change a computer name. I have seen that you need to fix the scheduled tasks, but I don't know of any other issues that arise...

regsvr32 softpub.dll

regsvr32 wintrust.dll,

regsvr32 initpki.dll,

regsvr32 MSXML3.dll.

1) Is regsvr.exe a command file ?
2) If I use command "regsvr32 softpub.dll" on Run box, will that add softpub.dll in the registry or will it update this file ?
3) What does this command do in the registry ? If this command adds softpub.dll file in registry, then how can I remove it if it does not solve the problem that I am facing ?
4)Where does this file get created or updated ? If this softpub.dll and other files are already in the registry, how and from where can I take copy of these files ?

Hello- I am trying to fix the problem with Outlook 2003 showing a red x where embedded image should be in my email. The fix I found said to go to Run, type cmd then navigate and open this registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security\OutlookSecureTempFolder.

How do I navigate to this registry? After I type cmd and hit ok, I only get c:\users\mycomputer>


A:How to navigate to find registry key

Typing "cmd" will give you the command prompt, not the registry. To enter the registry, type in "regedit" instead.

You'll have your navigation panel on the left and click until you get where you need to be.

Once you get to the "Security" Key - click File / export and make a backup, just in case.

Is there a program available that will allow a person to find and replace entries in the registry.

Yes, I am aware of the issues regarding making changes in the registry. However, my external hard drive failed and I need to change all entries related to the external hard drive in order to reinstall many of the programs that were on it.

Microsoft will not install anything because G:/ drive is invalid. Adobe will not install for the same reason. Many of my other programs look for the G: drive and stop installing when it is not found.

Thank you. If this is the wrong forum, please move.


A:Find and Replace in Registry

You can use the built in registry editer. Start -> run -> regedit. Before making any changes be sure to back up your registry.

I'm in the process of repair/recovery of my machine (Dell Inspiron 8500 with Windows XP Home, Service Pack 2). I'm following exactly the instructions in: http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...chmentid=62075, but a problem has developed. The "software" file (which is the file that the original blue screen error message says is "corrupt, absent or not writable") will not copy to the new tmp directory to create the backup. My understanding from the article is that this backup file (software.bak) will later be used to restore correct settings for various software applications. Since I can't copy it, it appears that I am screwed, no? Or is there a way out somehow?

Thanks to anyone who's been there and can help...

BTW I have the XP installation disk that came with, and a diagnostics disk which I have not yet run.


A:Blue Screen: Registry File Failure; can't copy corrupted file to tmp directory

Never mind, I had it wrong--didn't read the document referred to above carefully enough. The procedure worked like a charm, and the document is very easy to read and entertaining to boot! (pun intended).

The document describes a procedure that closely follows a Microsoft KB document (which I now can't find) but does not contain any warning regarding whether the OS is an OEM (original equipment manufacture) install or not. The Microsoft doc says not to use the procedure on an OEM-installed OS, but I just did it on my Dell, so that warning seems to be incorrect.

Many many thanks for the help provided by this document and this site.

I have been using Sage WinForecast V4.03 for several years and it worked fine on Windows 7 and until 4 days ago on Windows 10. Now when I try to load the program I get the message
'overflow while accessing registry or .cfg file'.

I have tried a clean reinstall of the software and also reinstalled form backups and no change. I also tried a previous version of the software and that worked (but would not read my later version files :-/) and also cleaning/defragging the registry.

I have tried searching the web but cannot find any reference to this issue.
Thank you for your help in resolving this.

Hi there,

due to some complete mishap, I was forced to reinstall Windows XP. Before doing so, I did a system backup, so I could restore all files. The problem is the registry. Due to the new install, many applications will not report as installed and request that I install them anew. But I got a copy of the old registry file (system32\config\software) in the backup. Is there any program that would allow me to edit this file and export those keys I need to a .reg file?


A:Progam to transfer selected keys from old registry file to .reg file?

You are asking for more trouble... You should have created an image of the entire hard drive, and restored that image to a "clean" formatted drive. You could spend hours and days editing the registry, but even this wouldn't guarantee success

Hello,I was recently infected with several viruses, spyware and malware on my computer. Thanks to this forum I was able to remove almost everything off of my computer using roguescanfix_setup.exe and smitRem.exe. However, when I scan my computer with Panda, it says that there is still one file from sytemdoctor in my registry. Below is the log.IncidentAdware:adware/systemdoctorStatusNot DisinfectedLocationWindows RegistryI've done a search for all of the common systemdoctor registry keys and I can not find any record of these in my registry. How in the world do I find this registry file? Thanks in advance!

A:Help Find Systemdoctor Registry Keys?

Hey there Savitri.To be honest with you, when I see entries that in a Panda log I ignore them. Most likely you have a single orphaned registry entry left over from the previous infection which is doing no damage to your system at all. It could even be a false positive and the key actually isn't there. My recommendation would be to either completely ignore that entry as it is most certainly harmless even if the reg entry is present, or you can try and remove it manually. The easiest way to remove the file would be to run an updated general antispyware scanner. I would try adaware and instructions are posted below:Please download Ad-Aware SE Personal and install it. If you already have Ad-Aware SE, please configure it as indicated below. If you have a previous version of Ad-Aware, please uninstall your current version and install the newest version SE 1.06.Run Ad-Aware, and click Check for updates now.Select Configurations (click the Gear wheel at the top) as follows:General Button > Safety & Settings > Check (Green) all three.Tweak Button > Cleaning Engine > uncheck "Always try to unload modules before deletion".Click Proceed.To start the scan, Click > "Scan Now" at left.Select "Search for low-risk threats". Select "Perform full system scan". Click "Next".When the scan has completed, select Next. In the Scanning Results window, select the "Critical Objects" tab. Right-click on the screen and...
