Strange startup progs

4 strange lines in the HT log, does anyone know offhand what they are / mean ? as I'm about to remove them:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe smsse.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Cryptographic Service] C:\WINDOWS\System32\uuhkpay.exe

O21 - SSODL: Web Event Logger - {79FEACFF-FFCE-815E-A900-316290B5B738} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\Lppadc32.dll (file missing)

I agree with Crossbow7.

smsse.exe appears to be a nasty, I can't find anything on the others but they could be randomly generated filenames (always suspicious).

Thanks ..will do ...

SORRY ... that last line has gone to a click here and then prompts a download ... maybe a mod could remove it as it was a line in the HT log but might be malware
