i think, therefore i compute SuperAntiSpyware considers it a threat
My Powerreg Schedular V3.exe came from a game I installed, and the uninstalled. AVG Antivirus caught it this morning and I sent it to the vault, and AVG deleted it from C\. The registry value is above, and until it is removed, it will survive startup.
Avg 2011 Free had no problem removing it.
When I turned my computer on today AVG caught it as malware and said it was dangerous and unwanted and moved it to my virus vault. I don't know how it got on my computer. I don't have any room to put any new software into it so it didn't come from that. Last night my son and I were researching Michael Jordan to write a report. That is the last thing we did on the computer. The only thing that I can think of is that it came from one of the websites I clicked on to get info for the report.
My computer suddenly "shuts down" aka the screen turns black for no particular reason, I just happened to see this program in Msconfig and googled it as I didn't know what it was. Seems like others with this has had the same problem.
Installation reminder - you people are boofheads....
  mind your own business  
The problem occurred right after I installed Norton Security Suite and appears inC:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\Norton\QuickStart\S-1-5-21-3628239739-2030820766-350057258-1006FolderForUser. Seems to be a Norton executable.
Microsoft identified it as a 'medium threat' but has no fix for it.

Best practices for resolving PowerReg Scheduler V3 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with PowerReg Scheduler V3. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
