On a laptop I just installed Windows 7 on I noticed some strange entries in the startup so I disabled them and ran Malwarebytes. I was correct and they were Trojans and Malwarebytes removed them. But now on start up I get Regsvr32 messages saying the module failed to load. These are the same entries I disabled and Malwarebytes removed so how can I get rid of the messages

Removal of malware will often leave "orphan" entries that were installed by the now-removed malware.  If you can identify such entries in your startup programs, you can use startup tool like Autoruns for Windows to disable them or remove them.


Worth A Read, IMO
