Ryand833, you mentioned that you suspected that the change in registry value maybe due to a virus? I was wondering how you may have acquired that virus, and how do you know that you've removed it. Because I ran both NOD32 and Norton both not yielding any positive identification. I"ve noticed a few odd startup items which I've managed to remove successfully along with the registry values that you've mentioned above. Again if anyone suspects that this is a virus, please share your account of the situation. Thanks.
