Does anyone know what this registry entry is?


I could not find any information about it on google. I noticed it when I was doing a virus scan with Avira AntiVir. The entry came up as a "hidden object", but did not label it as a threat or an infection.

I've done Spyware scans with SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, and Spybot S&D, and they didn't come up with anything. There also doesn't seem to be an application referencing this registry entry.

If you search for "DbgagD", it usually comes up with sites that help users trying to remove infections off their PCs, but there's no explanation as to what this registry entry is, nor was it detected in any of typical malware scans used to remove the other infections on the PCs.

I don't know if I should worry about this since my computer runs just fine.

Yes, I've seen this page. There are several problems though.

- Although it was identified by some scanners, it was not identified as a threat.

- The task to remove it failed.

- Tech support had no idea what it is, and closed the cases anyway.

You'll find 2 of the 3 or all of the above in most of the results on google.

The question I posted here is asking if anyone knows this registry entry and it's origins, not on how to remove it.

Ive got it too in my log after a full system update - my avira scan shows :-
[NOTE] The registry entry is invisible.

I reinstalled my system after it appeared before, as I was told it was likely to be new rootkit malware, but I am now unsure after it has popped up yet again. What do you have installed on your system? Terris solution (the link suggesting to use combofix) ruined my machine the first time, forcing me to reinstall windows, it detected it as malware, but the system would not repair itself, so I had to give in and reinstall windows completely after that.

update:- Ive just reinstalled windows and have kept checking the registry after each installation. The same undeletable registry entry has appeared yet again, this time just after installing a Java program on vista SP2 (installation of vuze), so this seems to have been the cause all along. It was not an infection.

That is probably what happened in my situation as well. I updated to and the entry appeared in my system. I was not able to figure this out initially since I installed other applications the same day that the entry appeared according to RootKitRevealer. However, the other applications I installed(or updated rather) that day were apps like Java and Firefox, and nothing exotic. I suspected Vuze at first but when I ran it it didn't appear to be using this key for anything, so I'm guessing it has something to do with the installer for Vuze. Not to mention that the Vuze forums at the time didn't have any new posts about it, and I'm not sure if it has been resolved there yet.
