An odd boot up

Three times tonight when I booted up I got the
`boot-down` page come up asking me to choose between closing down and clicking on my name to boot up.
I thought I had some nasties on board so ran SpyBot, AdAware and Avast. The only thing that came up was a red entry from SpyBot as follows:
"Windows Security Centre.Antivirus override`
I clicked the box and got:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Sec

I don`t think that`s a problem so does any one else have a suggestion please?

When you run any removal tools for spyware disable the system restore first. Once done re-enable it.

Spy ware can have hte habit of coming back because it hides within system restore...

Thanks to you all. I resolved it by doing a system restore. Now I`ll switch off S/R and do another run with SpyBot, etc.
