I was messin around trying to optimize my system a bit to make it restart a bit quicker and for shutdown times.

And when I was looking through msconfig under the startup tab, there are two things there that show up as booting when windows starts, and these two items don't show a name at all. It wouldnt let me attach the file, which is 1.6mbs even though its telling me my global attachment filespace is 2mbs. So I dunno, if anyone has heard about anything like this, let me know what you think I should do.

Thanks in advance!

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.
