Hi acklan did as you said and unchecked the quick launch but they are all still there if I put the cursor on the little Chevron near the clock, the list expands with these icons there, Hope I am making myself understood, Thanks Clank
Right click on the TASK BAR (the bar to the left of the clock and to the right of the START button) go to TOOL BAR then uncheck QUICK LANUCH. That should do it.

Are you talking about the icons in the same box as the clock?

If you would like to control which icons are visible and which icons are hidden: right click anywhere on the task bar (usually a blue bar just to the left of the icons), click properties, put a check mark next to 'hide inactive icons' and then click on Customize... Here you will have the opportunity to tell Windows which icons you want to see and what icons you want to be covered over, or hidden, by highlighting an individual program and making a choice from a drop down menu that will appear to the right of the program.

Went to msconfig start up there are about 20 programs in there most of which the names mean absolutely nothing to me except like onspeed, windows money and one or two others
went to my Spybot search and destroy it also has about 20 but the file names again look meaningless ( they would mean something to someone with more computer knowledge than me)
Very strange though the last two entries in msconfig start up look like nothing that resembles normal writing in the start up and command panell its like a row of thick IIIII and small O for both entries the location for both is HKCU\Software\Microsoft windows\nt\current version\ windows run (Top entry same for the bottom entry but it finishes load.)

I think you need to scan your whole system, not just look at one file. Try these basic security tests:
Is your Anti-virus program current and updated? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free
When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.)
Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system.
Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following:
Reboot your computer in Safe Mode and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
- Ad-Aware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/
There is a tutorial on how to run this here: Ad-Aware Tutorial
- Spybot Search & Destroy from http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download
There is a tutorial on how to run this here: SpyBot S&D Tutorial
- SpywareBlaster from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
There is a tutorial on how to run this here: SpywareBlaster Tutorial
- A-squared complements anti-virus software by specializing in detecting Trojans, Dialers and Spyware.
It is free for private use but registration is required. Download it from here: A-squared
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
See if that helps
