My pc connects on start-up. I have gone into MSCONFIG and unchecked "updater" which helped before. However after applying and restarting it still connects and updater is checked! Why? Can I delete updater somehow? I think the problem came about after downloading a Desktop Theme

It could be a number of things, likely to be spyware related, run Adaware and Spybot

I have run Ad-Aware and Spybot. The "updater" in MSCONFIG still keeps re-ticking. I don't know why.

There may be another item in MSCONFIG that is putting the tick back remove all that you do not need you can put them back if things do not work as expected but leave AV and firewall
