Hi,

The problem i have is i keep on getting a blank startup item showing in the msconfig startup. Now i have tryed using various programs to identify what this startup item is such as, spybot search and destroy, startup inspector for windows and i have run HiJackThis and looked through the log file and i cannot see this blank item in any of these programs, it only shows up in msconfig.

I do believe it is a trojan cause my computer does slow down when it shows up. Now if anyone can come up with any ideas to identify this rogue item and how to remove it permanately, your help would be much appriciated.

Hi Jason

A good place to start would be Sysinternals Autoruns which will show way much more than MSConfig. If that confirms a trojan or something that is not obviously legit, then please post your HJT Log in the HJT Forum (do not attach it or post it here). Don't forget to include as much detail as possible. We can then have a look and help clean your system, if required.
