Download Malwarebytes from a site like and run it. It should help . I had the same problem on two customers computers. This new spyware disabled access to the drives, regedit, task manager, admin priveleges, etc. (particularly nasty). I had to boot into safemode with networking to be able to download the software.

Too many programs open at start up

Your best bet is to download CCleaner and use the startup cleanup option. The program is free, and it won't let you prevent any essential system apps from running

I have the BSOD problem - msconfig admin privileges

msconfig is just a nice GUI to the keys in registry, what you may have is a driver or disk problem.
run chkdsk C: /F (or /P if in repair console)
instead of running msconfig, run services.msc and disable everything that doesn't belong to microsoft.
with another computer, download
copy it to the troubled machine and run it via the command line.
It's a very nice utility, msconfig on steroids :)
