Squares (boxes) in msconfig after scanning


Recommended Posts

We have been using Malwarebytes to scan for virus/spyware and we love it. Recently, just this week, we've noticed immediately after a scan it will add 2 lines to msconfig that are just square boxes. Upon reboot they do not go away, we thought maybe it was an infection so we unselected them and rebooted, it gives an error and adds 2 more lines with less boxes. Any idea what this is about? We were thinking maybe it had something to do with Malwarebytes doing the restart after a scan?

Bump.

I have these as well...did a search but no definitive answer...anybody have an idea?

msconfig>startup >2 instance, Startup Item and Command are square boxes.

Loaction is HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows:run and HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows:load

I (& several others) have the same problem. The link below to another thread gives instructions on how to remove the squares and registry entries, but unfortunately no information as to what caused them or why they appeared.
