I have been reformatting my Toshiba Qosmio (G35-AV600), very bad Malware infestation, but it was due. Anyway, I have been going through start-up and I have one line with no name under Startup Item and the same with Command, nothing. It does list location "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run". I'm using WinXP Media sp3, with AVG 8.5, Malwarebyts Anti-Malware, and also SpyBot S&D which all have found nothing.Any Ideas??????
Thanks

I ended up just unchecking it, and rebooting, It was gone after that. Thanks for the links I looked all of them and not one said anything about just unchecking. I will let you know if the laptop melts. :thumbsup:
