    Hello Everyone: Am using windows xp home with updated everything, I could not seem to post this in the Hijack forum as it was showing me as a guest and not a registered user.

    What you are showing are Registry entries located at, for example:-

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    The Reg entry would be used to autostart the file.

    Generally AutoPlay.exe is not a virus, but a virus could be given that name. Do you have a location for the file itself?

    You may need to log in as Administrator, or change Permissions with Regedit, to effect a fix.
