You have to add the c:\rep.txt file as an attachment that it created when you ran the runs.bat file.

Looks like 3+mb for that file you asked for wannabe. Can't get it here, sorry.

I think this is the whole registry, using keith's suggestion.

Mamabeah...

Click Start, then Run, type regedit, and click "Ok".

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run. In the right pane, locate "Lexmark X1100 Series" and double click on it. Delete the quotes out of the Value Data box and click "Ok".

Reboot...better?

If this one doesn't turn the trick, there are a couple entries under Current User we'll look at. I think they are Adobe hotkeys, though.

tkbelle is used by several legitimate applications as well as the malware I originally suspected. However, in your case, it appears to belong to the RealPlayer installed on your machine...I think we'll leave it.

Click Start, then Run, type regedit, and click "Ok".

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run. In the right pane, find the entries "CU1" and "CU2", double click on each one and delete the Data Value (" "), clicking "Ok" after each.

Reboot...

There wasn't a data value "" in either of those. The only one with that was:

"C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background

If Messenger had a null Data Value (""), delete that value and reboot. It should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background

What I'm finding a bit odd is that you have no "Default" strings in either of the registry keys we're working on. I'm looking into that as it just doesn't seem quite right to me.

I vaguely remember CU1" and "CU2 and being asked to try and delete when I was getting rid of adware.

I removed what you said and no change.

Honestly, it's doing my head in, but if you don't think there's a fix for it? It's just weird because that folder never popped up in start up before I got rid of all the nasties on the system.

Oh...there's a fix for this. What's making this tough (aside from the fact that none of the usual "fixes" have been effective) is not knowing exactly what caused it.

While we have so many copies of your registry floating around, let's do a little creative troubleshooting.

In Registry Editor, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run.

Right click in the right pane, point to "New" (like there was a choice... :tazz: ), and select "String Value". Type (Default), and left click the right pane to set the change. The String should look like this: (Default) REG_SZ (value not set)

Then expand (click +) HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run. Create the Default string value in this key, as well.

Reboot.

In Registry Editor, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run. In the right pane, delete all string values other than the Default string you just created. Then do the same in the CURRENT_USER key. Close Registry Editor.

Reboot...folder still open?

Ok...let's keep our eyes on a couple things.

First, is the printer still listed in Control Panel under Printers and Faxes? Does it work?

Does MS Messenger still work?
