A few new msconfig startup files

    Just checking my startup tab on msconfig, I noticed that I have two
    new files there:

    xvkwsftav
    xctvsftav

    I've tried to find out what these are through internet lists but I
    could not find them anywhere. Maybe they are part of some recent
    software I have loaded.

    Any idea what they are and can I "uncheck" them?
