Hi Jacee

Ok that's done and it has cleared out lots of junk (I took the precaution to create a Restore point beforehand - just in case)

Thanks for your input.

Yes, it does look good. Any more scans Jacee?

When Jacee is satisfied that your system is disinfected, I'd like to know the status of the original issue in post# 1.

Please post a screenshot(s) of your msconfig startup tab after Jacee gives the all clear signal.

Thanks

Bill

Couple more things to do jdb007...
Please download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
