    Regedit, regedt32, and taskmgr close immediately after opening. I have seen several messages with the same problem but the fix didn't work. I saw you ask for hijack this so here it is. Thanks for any help you can give.

    The progs start now but I did find the wincfg.scr file again then removed it. I included another hijack log if you can check it. I really appreciate the help.
