Get this utility now!

AutoRuns from SysInternals just helped me clean up a PC with 20-30 spy/mal-ware applications installed on it. Just make sure you go into the view menu and check the various “show …” items so you see not only what gets run on start-up from the registry, but the various services and Browser “Helper” Objects.

Now I leave again to finish installing SP2 and get this PC back to its owner. Thankfully only one of the two PCs I was given was infested 😀
