looks to be 100% malware / pest free to me! you are clean as a whistle! I personally would take out all those (legitimate) BHO's though, but then thats just me. maybe even some of those startups. but if your not having any probs then just leave as is.

actually there is a way around it. download a free utility call magic jelly bean keyfinder. put it on a floppy and stick it in the puter your installing windows on. press press shift f10 (simultaniously) to bring up a dos prompt. type a: then type the name of the executable you just downloaded. it ...

sounds like it went from bad to worse. ok on the bootup when your see your brand name logo on the screen start pressing f8 key approximately once every half second. when you see the advanced startup menu, select last known good configuration. if it still restarts then go back to the advanced startu...

if i understand you correctly, your asking how to set up windows so that it wont automatically install itself? or asking how to make windows not automatically do a specified task when it is load (auto play feature). if it is the latter of the two then simply right click on the drive itself in my co...

if you get an error that the ISTsvc directory in not there. then just delete the entries in hijackthis or msconfig. DO NOT execute the "del *.*" command unless you are in the correct directory for example c:\program files\ISTsvc. that command is powerful and basic is telling windows to delete ALL F...

This is more of a blog than a how-to but anyway here goes my story. I had a customer of mine that suffered from a bad hard disk with physical sector damage. And part of the physical damage was right where the "software" hive was located, in c:\%systemroot%\system32\config. I was getting the BSOD bl...
