Every time I ActiveSync, MalFile.Exe recurs in Desktop Registry with 6
additional errors.

I have uninstalled Avantgo my Desktop -- running Win2000 Prof -- using
Contol Panal's Add/Remove Programs.

I have deleted the folder from ....\Programs\Avantgo.

Then using RegEdit removed all references to Avantgo.

Still, every time I Sych my iPaq rx3715 running Mobile Windows 2003,
The desktop Registry again has everything I removed!

The Registry has these two:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
Data\Microsoft\ActiveSync\Profiles\Pocket_PC\AvantGo\MALConfig.cfg

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
Data\Microsoft\ActiveSync\Profiles\Pocket_PC\AvantGo\MALConfigSync.cfg

Program has this folder again:

C:\Program Files\AvantGo Connect

And Norton System works has again these 6 errors about Missing or
Invalid Keys:

news\DefautlIcon
news\shell\open\command
nntp\DefautlIcon
nntp\shell\open\command
snews\DefautlIcon
snews\shell\open\command

Here is a picture of Norton's Report on these Registry Errors:

What do you suggest?

Thank you.

Does Win2000 have the msconfig utility? If it does then run it, look
for the item in the startup tab and disable it. It may be active in
memory so not get removed when you uninstall. Reboot after deactivating
it.

Other than that try reinstalling it, then removing it. Look at active
tasks using ctrl-Alt-Del and disable those not needed- anti-virus and
firewalls can affect some installs/uninstalls so disable them too.

The issue may be linked to multiple users or administrator rights, if
the above don't help then try in a win2000 newsgroup, they should be
able to offer some guidance.

Thank you for your reply.

Problem occurs not with booting.

Problem occurs only after Activesync.

Win2000 does not have MSCONFIG.

What else can this group suggest?
