Hello Ozzu,

I have a problem with a Windows XP SP2 system that has demonstrated several irregularities. Regedit will open and after 10 seconds it would close automatically. Additionally, after doing a Google search, I would click on a link and end up going to a random website. It doesn't happen everytime but enough to get my attention. Additionally, chkdsk doesn't run after rebooting. I ran Spyware Doctor in Safe Mode and all the problems mentioned happened in Safe Mode as well.

I've run the following programs in order to try and find a virus, adware or spyware:

Spyware Doctor 6.0.0.386
http://www.trendmicro.com/housecall
EZTrust 7.0 Virus Scan
sfc /scannow
Advanced System Care 3

I've also followed the directions from your "Steps to Take Before Posting":

I went to Add/Remove Programs and did not find any of the listed applications. I also went through and removed any programs that seemed out of place
Ran Spybot - Search and Destroy in Safe Mode - found a few things but all were cookies
Rebooted to Safe Mode
Ran Ad-Aware and only found one cookie
Rebooted to Desktop
Ran Regedit again and window closed after 10 seconds

if the domain names in 017 belong to you, then don't delete them but none of it looks right to me.
