MSCONFIG startup list

I'm running WinXP and occasionally check my startup list in msconfig to make sure all is ok. Well I just discovered MediaAccess and MediaAccK are bad and MediaAccK is on my startup list. Thing is according to Add/Remove programs it isn't installed on my computer, HijackThis doesn't list it and so far I haven't found it in my computer anywhere. So, how do I get it off my msconfig startup list or can I at all?
Another quick question, I am planning on using Norton System Works to wipe my hard drive. Should I create a sys restore point after I do the wipe? Over the next few days I'll be cleaning up my computer, so I'm sure I'll have more questions since I'm really deep cleaning. After reading a website about hidden Microsoft files I discovered .dbx files co ntaining emails from the previous owner of this computer. So needless to say, there's plenty to clean. LOL. :tazz:

U have malware infection.
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

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