  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  Things in the run folders are started at startup.
  This is the key to follow down and look in all the run type folders near this 
  one.

  The remote thing is real and is not bad stuff. It just is all turned on if 
you 
  have a computer failure and they need to help you out. It's not some of that 
bad 
  stuff.
  It's just part of xp.
