Default xp home registry

I had some one bring me a pc to clean off spyware and such. I removed what I could thru add/remove, then ran updated spybot S&D, installed and updated, ran AdawareSE. Fixed all problems found. Now when I reboot the PC I get an error
The error is showing a square box and an arrow, like the gender sign. This error appears 4 times in a row when I click OK. There were 3 entries in msconfig with these symbols and I unchecked so that would not load, but it still returns.
Any ideas or suggestions appreciated. She does not want to reinstall fresh.
