    Thank you VERY MUCH for this info. I noticed peculiar action and slowness when browsing the internet, and went to the Task Manager, only to find an unusual entry that couldn't be killed (Persistance.exe). I found a few entries in the registry that matched it and got rid of them, but because of your info, I totally eliminated the rest of it (at least 14 copies!) in all locations.
