I have made progress from the posts I made in the Security section so I've
made a newer post here to clarify the situation I'm in removeing whse .

I got a bit carried away cleaning up the registry to remove traces of
whse .
I must have removed too many items and the Avast taskbar icon disappeared .
So I restored Windows to a created restore point .
Well the Avast icon is back and all the items I removed from the registry
are gone but the WhenUSearch is on the Startup programs in msconfig .
I don't want it .
I have found an entry for WHSE in the registry :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Programs\NvidiaCorporation\WhenUSearch\
... , and I'm not sure how I got WhenUSearch to disappear from the Startup
Programs list in msconfig , but I removed the ?file WhenUSearch from the
Nvidia Corporation list .
There is 2 entries in the WhenUSearch entry :
(Default) REG_SZ (Value not set)
and
Order REG_BINARY 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 0c 00 00 00 01 and the
rest is 0's in pairs
what should I delete to remove the WhenUSearch from the msconfig Startup
list ?
is there somewhere else I should consider looking to remove further traces ?
i already checked the entries Symantec recorded as entries to remove but
that entry in msconfig Starup programs was still there .

thankyou .... and it's a dreadful rainy day in Auckland City , thanks
to him above for computers and comfortable chairs

I left a few entries in the order o fthe registry .
From Explorer , I should have written :
MenuOrder\StartMenu2\Programs\...then... NvidiaCorporation\WhenUSearch ...
and then the 2 entries for the Default and the Order ,
