System32/CMD & Command .com/.exe blank screens @ startup

Unread postby Rich01 » April 24th, 2009, 1:44 pm

System32/CMD & Command startup screens

I just ran Spybot, which identified 1 trojan and numerous registry issues. I removed the trojan and indicated I wanted to decline the registry changes (probably about 15-20). When I restart my PC, I now get at least 15 or so blank screens which pop up momentarily toward the end of the startup, that contain Wndows/System32/CMD or Command.exe or com. This occurs after Windows has loaded and the startup applications are being loaded. The screens only appear for a second or so, not enough time to do anything with them, and then disappear. Most of them are black with nothing else; but a few have a single line of text that disappears before I can read it. The screens are about 5x6 inches in size and by the time all my startup applications have loaded, they are all gone. Everything else seems to run normally.

I certainly appreciate any help in determining the cause and fixing it.

I have a Gateway PC with a Pentium 4 chip (1.3Mhz), 1.5 Gb memory, and I'm running Windows XP SP3.

I ran HiJack This and saved the following (but the O4 lnes for Spybot deletes look strange):
