    May or may not be the right place for this thread. Let's see.

    Running msconfig, there are two things I can't figure out. Can't find anything that identifies:
    Startup Item: Load Shell Command: load shell.dll /c/set --by windows setup--

    I've recently added samurize. Could this be it?

    There is another entry that is just blank. No listing for startup item or command.

    Hmmm, i did a quick search and it mentions it in a lot of spyware related threads. Run something like Adaware to check it out. I'm pretty sure it is

    I googled and the only hits i got were from pacs-portal (2)

    spybot- nothing
    adaware- Nothing
    hijack this- nothing

    well it's off now

    any ideas on the blank entry?

    If the string is blank not just the name delete it.
