none of these suggestions work. checked msconfig, win.ini etc nothing about the files mentioned in the errors i get. it only happens when a specific user logs in. admin doesn't get it. all spyware virus scans are clean.
A-Squared HiJackFree 3.1 worked for me. Download & run the stand alone (or you can install the full version).
Open A-Squared HiJackFree 3.1
On the left click: Autoruns
Click the plus next to: Tricky Startups
Click the folder: Other Trick
You should see now.
If not, check the rest of the folders.
