    Sorry, I missed one:

    Boot in Safe mode
    Press ctrl/alt/del and stop the process svcnt32.exe

    Run HJT and fix
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Start Page] C:\WINDOWS\system32\svcnt32.exe home

    When done, delete svcnt32.exe

    Could not find that entry or running process. The start page is fine now. But I when I open inernet explorer, i see a lot of messages being sent i.e. i see umpteen "scanning messa 1 of 1" pop ups from symantec. This pop up usually occurs when I send email. I'm assuming this is due to a program sending emails in the background.
