    Sounds like those were virus files that your AV caught and deleted, but never went into the registry to delete the "run" lines.

    Go to Start/Run and type "msconfig" and hit OK. On the Startup tab, look for those entries, and uncheck the boxes next to each one, then restart the computer. Those errors should go away.
