I recently cleaned my computer of some nasty spyware that was preventing me from using Outlook. Now every time It start up my machine, windows looks for the installation files for a fax software package. I haven't ever installed anything like this and I don't know where it comes from. When I cancel, it tries to install 2-3 more times.

here are some screen shots and my hijackthis log:

If you look under programs for a folder called startup have a look in there and see if there is anything relating to the fax program. If yes click & drag the file to your desktop reboot.

once installed click on the startup tab (top left under exit)
Then click on startup folders. You are looking for a fax program or anything you do not no what the program is. Do you have an all in 1 printer?

Did you clean your machine with our Malware team?

I do have an all in one printer - the same printer installed for almost 2 years. I have been through the malware forums and no one there seems to have an answer.

Couple of steps - we can always change back.
1st step is go to the startup folder in codestuff starter and untick
HP digital imaging lnk - restart. If no change.
2) Go to the registry key and un tick the 2 hp items - restart
If no change we will try you config files.
I am wondering if when you 1st installed your printer did you have to
install the fax then and while ding the malware fix this has lost a reference point. When it ask to install the Fax have you put the allinone cd in the drive?
