Default msconfig, help with start up

I've just run msconfig as I wanted to check what programs was running in start up.

Heres what was ticked!

Zone Labs Client

Is this ok, should I have anything else ticked?

Hey Chanell,

Zone labs client (for ZoneAlarm)
True Vector service (for ZoneAlarm)
Im not sure about CountrySelection but by any chance are
you using Windows and have two languages set to switch between?

The PTSNOOP is the one to be concerned with take a look at
these 2 links to see if you can decide if it's a virus.

Good Luck.

Anything with the word "Snoop" that I didn't install.... definitely would raise all sorts of red flags.

Get rid of that ASAP

Thanks everyone for the replies. To be honest I have not a clue what kind of modem I have (not a whizzkid yet) lol. Checked there in control panel, its HSP56 MR

Am glad that PTSNOOP isn't a virus!
