    A Google search says that it's related to TurboTax, but I've never owned a copy of that software. Spybot shows nothing on the system. What is this entry?

    I used Google. I did see C-dilla mentioned, and the word "spyware" used at the same time. Spybot showed nothing though; I just wondered if the entry was a leftover then, or if it's still on the system.
    I'll have to see what else might use C-Dilla.

    Do you normally look through your registry for suspiscious entries?

    As far as I know, it is used by SafeDisc. The default value for that key on my machince is "SafeDisc RefCount"

    :D you're not the only one... but I'm not that thorough ;). Usually it's more of a check to make sure I recognize the apps.

    Yeah, usually I go into the registry to manually remove entries from crappy uninstallers, or botched installs, or to remove pesky things from the Run sections.

    i occasionally go wondering through the registry. came across that and wondered what da hell it was as well. thanks! this finally put my paranoid mind to rest. only reason i didn't delete it was because i saw the same registry key in my spare rig also running winXP. thought since they both have it, prolly came with XP.
