    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

    Hi Alfie_UK

    Personally, I would remove weather bug as it is an adware based application. It's not a malacious application and some people like having the application, hence it's one of those optional choices.
    PsYk02 wasn't asking for help cleaning up his log so I only mentioned the most obvious entries to him in case he was intersted.


    I have to thank man1ac for picking up on this Gator item I missed:

    O4 - Global Startup: GStartup.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\GMT.exe
