I highly recommend you download and install the “FREE” application from Diamond Computer Systems RegProt “Registry Protector”.
This will alert you to when programs are trying to put themselves into the system registry. Many mal-ware programs will do this so they will be able to start each time the system is rebooted.
I have used this application on Win XP home and Win XP Pro
