User comments

This file LSDELETE.EXE is something Ad-Aware started to use. LS stands for Lavasoft, I believe. But I might be wrong because in my PC lsdelete.exe is spelled with small letters.
This is what SysInternals AutoRuns program shows for "lsdelete" on my notebook, running Windows XP Home SP2.

Location: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute
Autorun Entry: lsdelete
Description:
Publisher: (Verified) Lavasoft AB
Image Path: c:\windows\system32\lsdelete.exe

I did have Ad-Aware 2007 installed, briefly, several months ago. Since this is a BootExecute autorun entry, I suspect this may be related to un-installing Ad-Aware...
If Ad-Aware detects a trojan sometimes it has to reboot and prevent it from loading into memory to be able to delete it. This program accomplishes that function.


Please add your comments if you have more information about this file or if you know how to solve lsdelete.exe application errors.
