Trying to load your startuplist program & can't does it still exist?

Startup List | Written by a member of our support forums, this program will generate a highly detailed text log of every program set to load at startup. Highly recommended.

I have a program running somewhere and it is named <unknown>. At least that is what it appears in the Task window when you do cont+alt+delete. It is hijacking my IE(msn homepage) and causes it to freeze when it loads half way. When you click to end task to msn, I get an error message that <unknown> has caused an error in <unknown> and <unknown> will close now. When <unknown> closes, I can click on my exployer icon on the task bar and it loads. However it is changing my color on the monitor and the printer and the audio and all sorts of problems and stuff like that not to work properly or not at all. I was wanting to find a diagnostic that will tell everything that is running every where. I have thoroughly check the startup with codestuff starter. I read somewhere that things can be running from other areas load= and noticed on someones startup that it checked all that stuff. I'm cleaning up my system from a cool web infection, Mywebsearch. It is awful stuff!

Any ideas I would be most appreciative. :love:

Please do this.
Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywarein.../HijackThis.exe
Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

I don't see what could be causing the hijack. Please try this:

Download Ad-aware from: http://www.lavasoft.de/res/aaw6.exe

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

Posted Image Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:
  • Automatically save log-file
  • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
  • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :
  • Scan Within Archives
  • Scan Active Processes
  • Scan Registry
  • Deep Scan Registry
  • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
  • Scan my Hosts file
  • Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
  • All of your hard drives
Posted Image Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:
  • Include additional process information
  • Include additional file information
  • Include environment information
  • Include additional object details
Posted Image Click the Tweak button and select:
  • Under the Scanning Engine:
    • Unload recognized processes during scanning
    • Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    • Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
  • Under the Cleaning Engine:
    • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
Posted Image Click on Proceed to save the settings.

Posted Image Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:
  • Use Custom Scanning Options
Posted Image Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

Posted Image Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

Posted Image When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).

Posted Image Reboot your computer.

Another thing you may wish to try is remove the Compaq Knowledge Center via the Control Panel "Add/remove program". (Assuming that like most people, you never use it).
