    After tds has stopped its start up scan; i have noticed a line half way down saying tds has detected a change in the auto start registery is this worth further investigation or is it ok.
    the only thing i have downloaded was aol 9 on the 4 sept then the message appeared i have uninstalled aol 9 as it is only beta.

    A registry change note is always worth deeper investigation and if you know what you did it shouldn't be really alarming.
    For instance:
    if you have the quicktime player, it adds itself each time again to the autostart. remove it, see next time TDS alerting for a change. Use QT another time, TDS will alert for the change as it added itself, etc, so there are more possible changes.

    So you install AOL, it might even add a registry key "run once" which disappears after reboot, you'll see the TDS autoregistry change for adding and the other time disappearing/changing that key.

    So always look what it could have been. With that AOL9 can imagine and you can easily check by installing it again and see what happens.
