1.6 Ghtz computer, Win XP Home edition, 512MB Ram
After booting, I get several "Pop-up" notice boxes I need help in removing the cause. This all started after I used the tutorial "Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer" I followed the instructions COMPLETELY as described for installing and running, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and CWShredder. The only thing I did differently was after I completed all the steps outlined, before I rebooted, I went back and reset the Hidden Files and Folders the way they were originally. Now, everytime I turn on my computer, it boots and does everything it should and then I get a "box" labeled "System configuration utility" stating "You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way Windows starts. The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts. Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility." I click the o.k. button and then another box, (the startup selection box appears) and I check the "Normal Startup", and click o.k. then another "box" labeled "Spybot - Search & Destroy" appears with the following info. "Spybot - Search & Destroy has detected an important registry entry that has been changed. "Catagory" - System Startup global entry, "Change" - Value deleted, "Entry" - MSConfig, "Old data" - C|WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\. I have to "X" this box to close the another box appears in the lower right hand corner stating "Registery Change Denied".
My computer works just fine but this is very annoying to have to deal with everytime I boot-up.
I sent "dobhar", the author of the tutorial, and email but haven't heard anything back.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
