    Hi-

    My system is preforming reasonably well. I have run BOTH Spybots and Ad-aware Professional. However judging from the
    number of attacks my computer tries to ward off I just wonder if anyone sees anything scarry in this hijack thislog,

    also, Spybots (part of the regestry inconsistancy checks) said that

    Windows Registry: Kernelfaultcheck
    %system root%\system32\dumpreg 0-k
    startup file does not exist

    I don't really understand what it is in the first place much less if it exists. (should I let spybots fix it,
    which i assume means deleting the registry entry?

    Also, I am trying to make the transition from a computer that loads everything but the kitchen sink at startup to
    one thats loads programs if and when I actually want to use them. So if you see any glaring examples of something
    conflicting with this philosophy, please say so (Note combobuttun is already earmarked for removal - what it does is
    enable the physical botton on my external hard drive for a so-called one touch backup...only, i dont use the button
    I use the retrospect backup software controls which gives you many more options that you make into "one click" backup
    scripts)

    along those lines retrospect loads at start up using 3600K. i dont know why it has to run, but it is backup software
    that works so i am afraid to consider turning it off.


    As you can see at the end, I use several online virus checkers as a backup to my intalled Norton
    Product. Specifically: Panda, RAV, McAfee, KAV, AVG, and PC-Cillon.

    I have have a reason for the AV's and will ask a question or two on them in a separate post.

    Hi Hands Off,

    dumprep 0 -k
    dumprep 0 -u   Used in connection with memory dumps - you can disable these by - right clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties and then the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button in 'Startup and Recovery'. In the bottom pane - under 'Write debugging information' - click on the down arrow and then select 'None' - OK your way out

    This one is unnecessary as well:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroCheck] C:\WINDOWS\system32\NeroCheck.exe

    Source: http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

    The rest looks OK to me.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thanks Pieter-

    I will do as you suggest to get rid of dumprep 0-k, (still curious, does the name symbolize the programmers opinion of "preppie types", dum-prep, or was is a swipe at those annoying hardware sales types, dump-rep?)

    I like that you included that sight where i could have looked up nerocheck had I only known. When I did a search on it, i took a wrong turn and ended up on a sort of a cd-r cult's page where they seemed to worship Nero. They assurred me that "it had to check." Cults!

    Thanks Again!

    Hi HandsOff,

    Glad I could help. :)

    Since you are running XP this might interest you as well:
