    Hello!

    Can anyone help me with tracking down an application, please?

    I use Spiceworks on my network and one of things it does is create notifications about new software installed on the PC’s.

    It has identified the installation ‘Yahoo! Detect’ on three machines (W7 and WinXP). I can’t find anything useful about Yahoo! Detect on the net. I spoke to one of the user’s of these machines to find out if they knew anything about it, but no joy.

    There is no entry in Add/Remove Programs, ..Program Files, ..Common Files. Searching the registry yields one entry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstallYTdetect]
    “DisplayName”=”Yahoo! Detect”

    I searched for yahoo, detect and ytdetect.

    Anyone know anything about this application?

    Thanks
