What files?

Mine was C:\Program Files\CyberTweak\uninstall.exe but i know this file is ok.

I've contacted Lavasoft and submitted the file but it does say they will ignore any thing that is not a new submission. With no other way to contact them i did it anyway.

I've also contacted the makers of CyberTweak even though the uninstaller wasn't written by them but by a 3rd party.

C:\Program Files\CyberTweak\unins000.exe

Is the correct file...

Ps Registry Fix is a good program I've used for months with no problems.

Is the common factor....

I ran AdAware last night after updating and came out clean. To check I just ran it again; still clean.

Ran Registry Fix and showed uninstaller missing. Restored the file and ran RF now ok.
