is this a malware? i tried Google search, nothing appeared. Here in d Startup database, it's also non-existent. if i'm not mistaken, i've only seen it at my msconfig this week or last week.

Also, RedSwoosh (a Firefox/torrent add on?) kept on appearing on startup (seen in the msconfig's StartUp tab & task Manager) even if i repeatedly deleted/disabled it. How do i get rid of it during startup?

in msconfig's StartUp tab, how do i remove from the list all those that i disabled. The list has been piling; the Enabled startup items are outnumbered by the DISABLED startup items.

You should be able to uninstall redwoosh directly from add or remove programs.

Fkguvwnoo.exe looks like a random named malware. You can always submit it to http://virusscan.jotti.org/ to see what some antivirus programs say it is.

For msconfig, you need to enable them, and then remove the entries using a program like autoruns. Just do not reboot once you enable them or they will start again. Simply enable the ones you want to remove, close msconfig, do not reboot when it asks, and use autoruns to remove the entries.
