I was infected by 6 false trojan alerts. I ran Malwarebytes and it caught them and removed them but on my System Configuration Utility- Startup, there are two items. One begins with ~tmph and the other one starts with "a" and I can't read the whole address. I unchecked both but how do I get rid of them and how can I see the whole address? They are both unframiliar to me.

MSCONFIG.EXE is a troubleshooting tool - not a fixing tool.

First, re-enable them in MSCONFIG, then use this free tool to locate them and disable/delete them: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx

If you have difficulties with this tool, post back and we'll see if we can get the address for another one from garmanma.

Glad to hear that it worked! Autoruns can be a bit confusing, but it's the best (IMO) all-around tool for startup issues.
