My name is Cle Collins and live in South Mississippi. My computer specs are posted and would like to discuss Bytedance with you or someone you may know. I would very much appreciate help on fully removing Bytedance from my computer. I cannot find anything on line about how they infiltrate machines and how to defeat them. It has been quite the battle with my registry. I have been able get control of trusted installer and deleted all instances of Bytedance in my registry. However, when I reboot some keys show back up. So this time before rebooting, I ran sfc /scannow and that software put the keys back in. So I know Bytedance has infiltrated my %WinDir% \System32\dllcache file. I have attached the scannow log and this may help someone help me. This is going to be a big deal soon because TicTok is Bytedance and millions will have the undetectable keylogger that comes with the app. Thanks in advance - Cle

Try 'Everything' search from Voidtools,


Seems TikTok is also part of FormatFactory.

This is what shows up for me,

I would probably re-install TikTok, then use Revo to uninstall it and scan for leftovers.

I will work on that. Have you been able to remove those keys?
It's part of Format Factory ( executable programs written in the Python) I expect it would break the program so not removed them. Just ran 'Everything' to check if some TikTok files was on the PC. Surprised to find there was. That's all that was showing though.

Just thought i would post this ! Be very careful because TikTok employees actually have the ability to track your location if you use the app. On December 22, ByteDance admitted that four of their employees used the app as a surveillance method for journalists who reported on TikTok's ties with the Chinese government.
