Question HKLM\Software
Something tells me I don't need all this at start-up. But where did all the HKLM\SOFTWARE tasks come from? They weren't there before. Thanks! angelize56

No trojans; all is relatively normal, but there are a few items that you could uncheck in msconfig such as:

loadqm (not really needed for messenger)

taskmonitor (optimizes defrag, but also makes it take a lot longer to complete)

lexstart

Angel:

You can trim down that startup load quite a bit. These 2 sites will help you:

A lean startup load makes for a happier and faster computer.
