When I start xp before desktop loads completely a small black box pops up quickly then dissapears. Seems to say windows\system32\cmd.exe Happens so quickly hard to read everything. I've tried print screen but to fast for me to catch. When desktop loaded I haven't noticed any problems with PC but am concerned as fear a virus. Have run different virus programs and disc check,etc. It does not happen when booting in safe mode. Have googled several people having this problem but have read no solutions? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Click on Start - Run and type "msconfig" without the quotes then press enter.
Click on the startup tab and check if there's anything related to cmd.exe.

If you think it's related to malware, try posting in the Am I infected? What do I do? section.

Thanks for the quick reply. I forgot to mention that I already tried that and actually unchecked all startup boxes as there was no cmd.exe and it still happened when starting? I did go to run regedit and there are several cmd.exe but didn't alter as afraid it might screw up PC. Not sure if it is a virus as really haven't had any problems with PC running programs,etc.

I see that Broni is helping you with this issue in another part of the forum, so I am closing this topic to prevent confusion.
