Windows 7: MSconfig causes command prompt to show on bootup

MSconfig causes command prompt to show on bootup

Hi,
I used msconfig (selective Start-up) and I'm done. So, I went back to "Normal Start-up" , now, I've got the command prompt popping up during boot up. (Just before the icons appear on screen)

It can flash on for a split second or stay for a second or 2. It's a blank screen and there is nothing in the Start-up directory.

I've had this happen before but I don't remember what solved it.

Joe

What methods have you tried uninstalling it? You could try System Restore to a time prior to you installing it.

If you go back to Normal startup everything you unchecked in the startup tab will run during startup . Which will slow down the PC and could allow malware start if you have malware .

Click here DDS

Click on Download Now button

When the download is complete . Drag the DDS program from the Downloads folder to your Desktop

Double click the DDS icon on the Desktop then click the Run button to run the tool.

Place a check next to attact.txt and click Start . When done, DDS will open two logs
  • DDS.txt
  • Attach.txt

Save two logs onto your desktop and upload them with your reply

It kind of sounds like regclean pro might be malware?

Agreed Dwarf or if it proves real hard dump it via Revo or regedit

I did a restore point right before I downloaded the fix. But the restore point left the files on my computer. so it recreated itself. I did NOT get a chance to try the download from bleeping computer (I'm not big on downloading anything else right now.)
I also did a complete backup before I down loaded.
I did a complete restore of my hard drive from my backup. Only took a few minutes and I'm fine.

Thanks to all,
for the Quick responses,

from the download fearing,
Joeaa

Just so you know the file DDS that Vistaking asked you to download is a Non-Invasive program that will scan your computer and create logs that can be used to display various startup, configuration, and file information from your computer. This program is used in our security forum to provide a detailed overview of what programs are automatically starting when you start Windows. The program will also display information about the computer that will allow us to quickly ascertain whether or not malware may be running on your computer

I was going to try DDS but I'm confused. I get ad for AVG anti virus and the link at bleeping computer? Looks Like I need to do a full reinstall of my software...lol that's will be an interesting chore. The bleeping computer download says it may not work on 64-bit which I am 64-bit .
