I hope it's kosher to post a link to another post I made in the XP forum (I'm only doing this because someone suggested I do). I dont think I have a virus/malware problem, but maybe someone here will recognize it.

Thanks

UPDATE: I just finished running the a-squared command malware tool and all that it came up with was 19 cookies.

Please try using this to repair the broken registry entry that may be causing this.

Download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click HERE if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

I dont think the problem is related to bad registry entries. My entire computer is on the fritz. Unless there's some way that the registry is creating all the problems I list in the link on my original entry, I dont believe this will work. Before I go deleting potentially necessary registry entries, is there some way I can check to see if it is the registry that is screwing up?

Have you considered a Repair install not full install of the OS?

I'm actually about to press enter to delete my C: partition. I have looked all over for an answer, and it's just not that common. Thanks for your attempts at help.
