    Could you give us a post of your startups by obtaining the Startuplist application from the site below. Unzip, run it and copy/paste the results to a reply.

    Have you run an updated antivirus scan lately? If not, try one of the online scans such as HouseCall

    Hang in there, did the virus scan show anything?
    I also saw bonzi in there.(spyware).

    You should also download spybot at this link and run it.

    Please be sure to read the instructions for spybot. It will remove whatever you check. Make sure that it is set to backup info just as a precaution. Should be safe to remove all red findings.

    As for your original questions I'm not sure if this will fix the error.
    Please let us know one way or the other.

    Still learning here so someone else may pop in if they see other problems.

    Eseege, I second the use of Spybot; but I would also recommend that after you download, install and update it, and before running it, you remove WebHancer from Add/Remove programs and then reboot. When you update Spybot, by the way, you should accept all updates except for the PGP and Language tools which won't be needed.

    Frankly I expected to see some entry for Sulfnbk.exe, which is the Windows long file name backup utility -- it often gets placed in startups by the old magistr worm. But I don't see it.

    When did this problem first start?

    edit This looks like a very suspicious entry:
    '
    Goaltend = C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\goaltend.exe

    This is not something, whatever it is that should be running from c:\windows\command. Run msconfig and click on the Startups tab to uncheck it. If it is not something you installed and/or this resolves the problem, you can delete the entry permanently from the registry by running regedit and deleting the entry from the

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ RUN- folder. The Run- folder is where UN checked msconfig entries will be found.



    If this or Spybot does not resolve it, then we have to do some "clean-boot" troubleshooting.

    In any case I would recommend you do the following:

    >> disable Cleansweep and run it only before larger, non-Microsoft installs.

    >> disable Crashguard permanently, in my opinion; this might be the source of the funny error message.

    >> also disable "System Doctor" (sysdoc) for the time being.

    >> do not let NAV run on startup through the Autoexec.bat file; it should have some configuration option to prevent that. Or you can run msconfig and uncheck the line for it under the autoexec.bat tab.

    The Startup tab in msconfig also allows you do disable other startups for troubleshooting. It's best to use their application user interfaces though, if you can find where.

    Follow instructions to delete this entry from the registry:

    mdac_runonce = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\runonce.exe

    >> run regedit (not regedit32) and navigate to the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    >> with the RUN key highlighed look for the mdac_runonce entry in the Right hand pand and right click on it and delete it.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q268062

    ===========

    After running Spybot give us a report and post another StartupList.

    You should also remove all entries in Internet Options > Settings > View objects that are not associated with major trusted vendors. This will include the ones mentioned by jim.
