    After installation of DivX make sure you kill the trickler proces which is running in the
    background, then run AdAware (can be found at with their latest
    referencefile and let it remove all spyware, delete the "gain_trickler" file in the divx folder as well, except for the registry-key
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{21FFB6C0-0DA1-11D5-A9D5-00500413153C}. This key
    is the only thing DivX 5.0 Pro checks to see if the adware is still installed... so without the
    adware and just this key in the registry, DivX 5.0 Pro will think its adware is still installed!

    Then you've got an adware-free system with a fully functional DivX 5.0 Pro.
