Oldtimer has been helping me in the malware forum to sort some problems out, which appear to have been fixed, so i tried to do the same to another computer in the house which has similiar problems.
i needed to stop the messenger service in windows XP as it was giving me messages every 10 seconds saying i had system registry errors and critical errors and all sorts of things which didnt appear to be true. i stopped messenger service and told it not to load on startup, and things have been better since. however when i tried to do it on the other machine (also running xp), i could stop it running but the drop down for 'disable automatic startup' wasnt there at all.
the messages stopped but came back after restarting
any idea how i can sort it out or why there isnt a drop down?
