Hello

Ever since about 2 weeks ago, on boot up I get a screen that says:
"Boot Cleaner
Initializing...|"
and it deletes one file, sometimes two. Here's the log so far:

Do you have Ad-Aware installed?

Go to Control Panel>Programs and uninstall it.
Then install Malwarebytes and scan with it to make sure that that apparent "Boot Cleaner" is not planting malware on your system. Boot cleaning is completely unnecessary.
Windows has all the needed utilities included, become familiar with them.
Use Disk Clean Up every month or two.
Clean out your browser's Cookies, History, Temp Internet Files, etc. at least weekly.
Use msconfig (carefully) to stop programs from starting with Windows (Start Tab). Most other features you should avoid until you learn more about them and then only use them at need.
Defrag. is automatic on Windows 7
The registry is best left for Windows 7 to handle (it is better at it than XP was).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yes, I have Ad-Aware. Is that the cause of the problem?
