@MeHell : I got this entry immediately after visiting a reported attack site, which google/firefox had warned me about.
I am hopeful the program, which just had its first startup boot, is now removed by deleting its executable. To get to its executable right-click startmenu and click open, navigate to programs-startup and delete the file there.

@MeHell: You can also use FreeFixer to delete the syspck32.exe file:

1. Download and install FreeFixer: http://www.freefixer.com/download.html
2. Start FreeFixer and click "Scan". The scan will be finished in about 5 minutes.
3. In the scan result, locate items which mention syspck32.exe, and check its "Delete" checkbox. syspck32.exe usually appears under "Autostart shortcuts" and/or "Recently created or modified files" in FreeFixer's scan result. DO NOT check anything else for removal, unless you are 100% sure it's malware.
4. Click "Fix" and restart your machine.
5. Start a FreeFixer scan again.
7. Verify that syspck32.exe no longer appear anywhere in the scan result.
8. Done.

Did this completely remove the syspck32.exe file from your computer?
