Hi, what OS are you using?
If XP or ME perhaps a System Restore back to a date before this happened might do the trick.

xp.. tried system restore but still no luck.

in msconfig i get 2 entries at the bottom refering to
00000 000000 HKCU\SOFTWARE\microsoft\windows NT\current version

Me again, I believe now that you have a virus. I suggest running any AV progam you might have and also Ad-Aware from click here

I have run various AV programes and im clear. Although saying that i did have a DLoader-cc on my system but its quarantined now.

Sorry my friend, I am no wiser than you at this point. I am only what I would call - an experienced novice. But I like to help where I can. In this instance I think you need someone like VoG or similar to sort this one. Hang on in there, don't do anything rash - I am sure those with the knowledge will come to your assistance before too long.

Good luck.
