My GF and daughter informed me that the desktop PC was running very slow. So, I did what I knew how to do, scan w/Malwarebytes, update Spywareblaster etc. After a reboot, I saw a few "new" things starting up. I ran "MSCONFIG" and found these two things....

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Currentversion\windows....(There are 2 squares here, I don't know how to make that happen so I'm explaining) : Run

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Currentversion\windows....(There are 2 squares here, I don't know how to make that happen so I'm explaining) : Load

If I disabled them, they would still return. So I probably shouldn't have, but I went to the registry and deleted both. The machine seems to be fine, so far. I haven't sat back down to take a look at it since Friday, but no complaints about speed or anything that would interest them.

My question is, what was that? Was it malicious?

Thanks for any help.

Any chance you could upload a screen shot? Do you mean squares like [] or ? ?
