My PC is running XP and IE8. When I run registry scans, Flash6.ocx shows up as an error. None of my registry cleaners can get rid of this entry, and I can't manually delete it. Here's the registry entries where Flash6.ocx resides:
Can anyone help me? It's driving me crazy!
Flash 6 was a long time ago. Windows XP wasn't even on SP1 yet. How that remained on your system so long is a mystery all to itself.
I often recommend FileAssassin from MalwareBytes to remove files that otherwise seem immovable.
Well, they make RegAssassin too https://www.malwarebytes.org/regassassin/ and it works the same as FileAssassin. If it can't remove it, it usually can't be removed.
Leave the registry alone! "registry cleaners" are the best way to disable a perfectly working Windows system.
