You post a HJT log if you suspect that your computer has a malware infection.
It is not for the purpose of managing startup entries.
Unless you are expert at writing to the registry and making changes or alterations it is suggested that you NEVER TRY TO USE THE HIJACK THIS PROGRAM BY YOURSELF!
An error while using it can render your op system irreparable and can require a complete reinstallation of Windows.
We suggest that you take advantage of getting step by step assistance from one of oyr HJT experts.
I suggest Startup Inspector to manage your startup menu or use the settings in the particular ap itself (if applicable) because it is easier to determine what application is connected to a particular startup entry using Startup Inspector than it is using msconfig, the Windows utility sometimes used for the same purpose.
Whichever you use, be careful not to disable your firewall, your resident anti-virus application, any anti-malware aps you have installed that provide real time protection and of course, any essential Windows aps or processes.
Startup Inspector – freeware (manages startup menu – helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)
Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)http://www.windowsstartup.com/download.php
