Could you post a screenshot of all the entries under the two registry trees (Start, Run, regedit):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/RunHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run

If you didn't have any luck with msconfig, then it's likely to be a corrupt entry that's causing that to happen.

Also, make sure the folder is not set to start in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
C:\Documents and Settings\your_user_name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

In HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/RunHKEY

Enclose the path for Yahoo! Pager with double quotes ("...") leaving out the -quiet flag

Do the same for ICQ Lite in the second tree.

You've also got TV Media, Windows SA spyware that you should remove. See the Spyware helpsheet in this forum and this article: http://www.pestpatro...h_assistant.asp

Also, could you post the full value of the RunDLL key. I just want to check what it is loading on startup.

ClrSchLoader,

The bridge.dll spyware is probably the culprit. Download this file: http://malwarebytes....AboutBuster.zip and do a full scan from safe mode. Then delete the file C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll if it exists.

Restart, and let me know if the bridge.dll entry for the rundll key is still there. Also, could you post your HijackThis log so I can be sure that the spyware is gone for good.
