RegClean (a.k.a RegClean 2008) is a corrupt drive cleaner tool and a clone of ErrorSweeper. Although it must be manually installed, it uses misleading advertising to persuade users into downloading. RegClean2008 offers registry scan, but the results of scan are always fabricated. RegClean displays exaggerated error reports with the sole intention of tricking users into purchasing the "full" version of the program. RegClean is just another malware scam out of thousands roaming the Web: remove it immediately after detection. Related files: zlib.dll, symlcsv1.exe

Comments on RegClean

I think I got rid of it.. Not sure though.

I have tried many scanners to remove it. Most scanners werent even able to detect it. I also deleted the files my computer came up with when I searched for regclean. After a while I tried to manually remove the program but I couldnt find anything in the registry that corresponds to the things listed on this site. I also tried to search for the DLL files as mantioned on this page. Because of this, I assume that it is removed.

However, when I look at my auto startup list (Run => msconfig => startup) it still lists regclean as an item. Could anyone tell me if this is a good sign or not?

Tnx for this page btw. I learned a lot through it.
I hate this program; once you installed this program then you can not remove it from your computer. I have searching in the internet to find solution to this problem if i do not succeed i will report this issue to Police and let police know that this program has been designed by the company to control people computers.
Funny to see that the google ad is on downloading regclean itself...
Removal Tool directs you to a SpySweeper installation, not the actual removal tool.
