Better way to remove ads from Divx 5



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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
