I really would run the security software Mumbodog has suggested. You have all the signs of your PC being infected with malware and doing nothing could make the problem worse as the malware you already have could be downloading and installing more without your knowledge.

Hi sorry for the delay in replying, I didnt notice you had posted as it was on ( page 2 ) , right I have carried out the downloads Mumbodog suggested and quarantined the offensive infections, the two DOS boxes have not come back since and my system is running OK although a bit slower now I suppose that's because of the additional checks now being made but I can live with that. I still have not booted up from the disc ( a bit apprehensive I suppose) do you still think that is necessary seeing as all seems well at the moment. thank you to you both

You need to use the boot disc as suggested, it will remove infections that cannot be removed by the other 2 softwares. The re-run the other 2 softwares to clean up the registry.
I put them in an order to do for a reason.

OK, I booted from the disc and it seemed to be going OK in dos mood with the black screen, but then the kaspa; disc reported that the disc was outdated and needed to be updated but when I clicked update nothing happened and I could not go any further, I tried to do a capture screen but when I went to paint to paste it nothing was there

thankyou, but while I was waiting I dissconected the mains and then the battery, then put the battery and mains back and switched on again, selected open windows normally and all seems well.
getting back to the kasper disc when I mentioned the outdated issue does it update from the web ? as I did notice that while it was running the top information bar stayed red with fix now displayed and my wireless conection was not active, so I tried the disc in my wired decktop pc and it updated and turned to green and ran perfect
