Dragdiag click here is to do with Alcatel aDSL modems.

You definately need your antivirus, firewall and any antispyware apps with real time protection to run at startup. If you want post a list of the items you have running at startup here.

This is a useful tool that will help identify startup items (there are lots of them, though !)
