Can anybody tell me why every time I boot the computer, it recreates dozens of new desktop shortcuts to files on a CD, which is not in the drive?
I've searched through the start-up files in msconfig and the Registry, but there's absolutely no reference to these files.
Could it be a virus or something?

Oh that sounds like a baddy there. Have you thought about posting an HjT log? Read this tutorial to learn how to go about it if you do not all ready know.

Do not fix anything until an expert tell you to. LOL .. no I am no expert hehe. After reading post your log into the HijackThis! Log and Analysis Forum.. just start a new topic in the HjT forum and copy & paste the saved log into the message field. The experts will take it from there. :thumbsup:
