Also, you could download and install SpybotSnD, switch to Advanced Mode, and look at Startup Items. You can disable, delete any extras/unwanted there - suggest disable and see if adverse affects or re-appears. Be aware that it does similar to CCleaner but in a different way, i.e. SpyBot simply "disables" and/or
"deletes", whereas CCleaner should
backup the entry prior to deletion giving the ability to "reload". Same principle, different method. CCleaner is smaller and does not scan for Spyware, etc.
Look them up to see what is featured and decide... Hope you didn't contract more; I had a recent "drive-by" and had a booger of a time eradicating it.
(should be moved to "malware" section?)
