Here are some of the(uninstalled culprits/files long gone?) items that persistanly show up at startup: Aol Faststart, AOLdialer.exe, AOLSPscheduler.exe, Emailscan /Mcafee.com/MCVSESCN.exe, Hostmanager/Aolsoftware.exe, OASCLNT/Mcafee.com/OASLNT.exe, PortNetworkPort/PortAol.exe/ PortMagic, Aol desktop search/Aol.exe, Speedoptimizer/ SPO.exe, SSC Run common file/Aol, HDD health, Second copy. As you can see I had AOL as my ISP and used Mcafee antiviral solutions. AOl, as we all know gets very nasty and hook on to everything- it just refuse to die. Per BCforum moderator jgweed's response to a related topic , I came to learn about Inspector Startup, in which I had downloaded/installed and followed through and deleted the suspects listed above. I don't know whether this would be resolute, but will see. Do you have any suggestion, if the action by Inspectorstartup does not work? Thank you so much for your response and being there for me. Appreciated. MGBY.
