Excuse the cross posting but I can't remember which list this came up on.

Here is our IT people's answer:

this is a symptom of the class virus. Trend products can clean the
class
virus easily, but it will not remove the registry entries because it
does not
know what your registration was before you were infected. to change
the
registration, open regedit and go to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
change the "RegisteredOrganisation" and "RegisteredOwner" values to
whatever
you like.
This will solve the problem.

BTW, I'm not connected with Trend in any way but I do like their product. I
hope this is of use
