    Everytime I boot my laptop a hijacker has placed something on my computer that puts from 2 to 7 files in my startup. Then I get a message with a flashlight saying the files are missing. Like morze1.exe can't be located (morze1 has been placed in startup).

    I have deleted them from startup and even found 1 or 2 in the registry and deleted them. When I search runservices in regedit most of the time I will not find any of the files it refers to. I have used spbot, ad-aware 6, noadware, norton antivirus, avg virus scan, sysinternal, etc and it doesn't fix the problem, they keep getting put in startup.



    Questions:
    1. Do you think that a registry cleaner will eliminate the problem or do I have to reimage?
    2. What else should I do?
    3. If I get this fixed what personal fire wall should I buy?
