well here is a screenshot of what is in my msconfig. just a week before i was cleaning it out and turning off services. i decided to check if i left anything on today and see boxes and a blank line all of a sudden? never seen this before, but im going to assume it's a virus or multiple virus's.

Hello BlueForce...

I think that rather than delete registry items, a trip through the Malware Forum may be a more appropriate first step.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
