  1. I have been having problems with my computer lately. Every single time I start my laptop up (the system information is attached as a .txt file for your convience) a strange thing happens. My 'My Documents' window always pops up, every time I start the system. As soon as I log in, the window that shows all of my documents appears. I thought it was a virus or something, so I followed all the steps and cleaned out my system. Then I restarted, and it was still appearing. So I did a complete scan of everything. Attached are the logs and .txt files with the results of my scans. Let me know if you would like more information!

    Hi Storm

    Run HJT Scan only select for removal the below

    O2 - BHO: NCO 2.0 IE BHO - {602ADB0E-4AFF-4217-8AA1-95DAC4DFA408} - (no file)
    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {7FEBEFE3-6B19-4349-98D2-FFB09D4B49CA} - (no file)

    You really have no malware just a misconfiuration.

    Get this: http://mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

    Run it find My Documents and delete it from starting.

    I have deleted those registry files from Hijack this. But My Documents was not in the startup programs on that software link you included. Is this okay?

    And I just restarted my computer and the documents window came back up automatically again. So it is still doing it. Help!! :)
