    Hi,
    The below message keeps showing up every time I start my computer. I checked to make sure the utility is set to normal mode, which it is, however it keep showing up.


    "You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way windows starts.

    The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts.

    Choose the normal startup mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changed made using the system configuration utility.

    (box to tick) Don't show this message or launch the system configuration utility when windows start."


    I booted in safe mode and used hijackthis to delete the below line, however once I reboot in normal mode it does not show, however the next time I start my pc it comes back.


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSConfig] C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe /autoO4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSConfig] C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe /auto


    I have attached my hijackthis log below for you perusal.

    I hope you can help me get rid of this annoying popup message.

    Thanks.

    From your start button select 'run' then type in MSCONFIG.

    If you've made any changes to the startup, here's where it will be. If not it may be time to look at malware.

    Reboot, put a check in the box (the one you say 'there's a box to tick') , and click ok.

    This is normal after using msconfig to disable startup items.
