Weird startup programs!

:( My friend's computer was totally full of junk. Thanks to AdAware and SpyBot we have decimated much of it, and I just downloaded CWshredder cause CoolWebSearch is so hideously tenacious. :)

The question I have is, there are some really bizarre .exe files in the startup programs area. I have not been able to find a THING on them with Google or Dogpile, and that is strange to me.

One of them I attempted to just go delete it and it would not let me, also this same program causes a Windows alert something like

"We are sorry but *anyprogramname* has encountered a problem and needs to close, would you like to send Microsoft data regarding this issue"

That is NOT the exact wording, and I know that is a legitimate message cause it has happened with absolutely nomal programs on my non-buggy home computer.

The unusual .exes are as follows:

tdgirho.exe (that is the one that encountered a problem and needs to close)

;) :tazz:

I hope and pray someone can help me with this. I haven't checked on these everywhere but it is pretty disheartening to not be able to find anything on Google, for heaven's sakes!
