    Everything looks clean in that hijack log.

    However bigfix is a crap program in my opinion. It runs in the background and slows things down however probably unrelated to your issue. Await others responses as well.

    The log is incomplete, and is from an old version of HJT.

    Install and run this one and repost the log.

    Well Thats a good thing things are looking normal so far. What is big fix and exactly what does it do? It was installed when I bought my computer and I never messed with it. Here is a log from the newer HJT. Thanks guys!

    You have a batch file running at each startup, probably caused by Windows XP Service Pack 3 installation not completing properly.

    I always get flamed for recommending fixes whenever a HJT log is posted so I will defer help to the experts.

    Sorry for that. A batch file executes Windows commands (batch files are a relic from MS-DOS, before Windows). For your problem which is not malware related, the Windows registry still contains a RunOnce entry that causes the file to run each time you start the computer, because an error occured while upgrading to SP3.

    Some choices going forward:
    1. Find the root cause and fix it, then reinstall SP3. To do that look in c:\windows\svcpack.log or c:\windows\spupdsvc.log for errors related to "tscdsbl.bat". Copy and paste a few lines in the file above and below the error for help.

    2. If SP3 is working properly except for the annoying cmd.exe window everytime you log on, run HijackThis again and check the box next to
    then click "Fix Checked".
    (Note: HJT has a restore feature if you would like to undo the change.)

    Can you clarify a bit more as to exactly what you are seeing at startup?

    Obvioiusly, c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe is there somewhere,but is it within a window? Are there any warnings/errors included?

    As indicated, this is related to SP3 but as a RunOnce item, it should do exactly that (Run Once) and then the entry in the registry removed. So, either it is running, and something is causing it to be reinserted in RunOnce key (an error perhaps), or the message you are seeing at boot time, is from a watchdog type program that is in fact, stopping the BAT file from running at all.

    BTW is the account that you are running under an Admin account?
