Unsupported File Tries to Load at Startup

During initial Windows 7 start-up or re-log on a file tries to load titled "David" and the best I could come up with it is some type of "MIME" type file. I tired to use MSCONFIG to locate the errant file with no luck. Any suggestions:confused:?

Hp yo msconfig and uncheck everything except your anti-virus scanner.

This may sound like a virusvis Have you done a complete virus scan lately.

The MIME type is what bothers me,

Google autoruns

download it and see everything that is loading at starup

That ca be dangerous unless you're a very experienced user.

Uncheck one wromg entrty...........hose your system.

:)Thanks everybody for your inputs. They were great. The "Terminator" and I found the errant file somehow got put in a "User" directory. We simply deleted it and we are now home free again.:)

True, but msconfig doesn't show everything . That bootracer program that reports boot time is hidden.

Other entries are hidden i the registry that don't show up in msconfig.
