someone take a look at my autoruns?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could take a look at my autoruns and let me know what I could weed out. What would be the best way to attach this? Thanks in advance to any advice :D

Please post the reason why you would want someone to read the logs in Autoruns, what are the issues. You can download it from here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

Save it to your Desktop, then run the Program, Depending on the instructions you receive from an admin. or someone who will read this from the HiJackLog forum.

As soon as you start the program, press the Esc. key to stop it. In the menu bar of the program go to Options and drop down to "Verify Code Signatures" place a check there.

Then Press F5 to start the program again. When its Finished scanning, Go to File, Save. and save it to the desktop. it will be saved as an .am file Then zip the the file up, (since there over 5MB+) and attach it to your post.

note: unless you were sent here? I would contact an admin like: AdvancedSetup via PM.

one reason is my instructions above may need to be changed? Its not up to me! regards (any questions?)

A more efficient approach for non malware problems is to use a simpler program to get started

Please download and run Processexplorer

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx

Under file and save as, create a log and post here

copy and paste into a reply

Thanks. Advanced setup had told me that I could probably weed out some things on startup when he was looking at my logs for malware in the HJT forum (no malware was found). Just trying to trim some stuff down. Here is the log you requested. Thanks for the help!

Well from what I can tell there does not appear to be any infection. You do have a few programs that do a lot of Input/Output to the hard drive and its possible that maybe they can cause a minor slowdown or mini freeze from time to time.

I would get a program like AutoRuns from Microsoft and weed down some of the programs that are not absolutely needed to run during startup.

Uninstall those that you also no longer want or use

Above is what Advanced setup said, if that helps any. Thanks!

You should still post the autoruns, I see a lot of stuff that could go, Advanced gave you good advice on that.

Ram only helps so much, still a heavy load for an old laptop with slow cpu and hard drive

@prairie dog: I just took a look at your Autoruns file, looks like you forgot to refresh and let it scan again after checking the entry for verify code signatures. Please post another per the instructions below:

Please download Sysinternals Autoruns from here.

  • Save Autoruns.exe to your desktop and double-click it to run it.
  • Once it starts, please press the Esc key on your keyboard.
  • Now that scanning is stopped, click on the Options button at the top of the program and select Verify Code Signatures
  • Once that's done press the F5 key on your keyboard, this will start the scan again, this time let it finish.
  • When it's finished, please click on the File button at the top of the program and select Save and save the Autoruns.arn file to your desktop.
  • Now right-click on the Autoruns.arn file located on your desktop and highlight Send To and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
  • Please attach the Autoruns.zip file you just created to your next post.

Thanks :D .

Yeah, I'm at work, no IM's here unfortunately (I don't like to install software on the work PC since it's against policy, even though I could get away with it :D ).

Do you run disk cleanup and keep at least 20% free space on your hard drive?

Do you see the same problems when sandbox is disabled?

Yes I keep at least 20% free on my Hard drive and I just recently added sandboxie, but don't use it all the time. I had the issue before installing it as well. It very rarely happens. Do you see a lot of items that I could disable from startup? Thanks

For some reason the second one you posted is still coming up blank as well. I tested Autoruns with another user's .arn file just to make sure it's not my software having the issue and it read his just fine. Did you press F5 as instructed after selecting Verify code signatures and make sure it said Ready at the bottom before saving the file?

Ok, let's try that then :D :

Please download RunScanner from here.

  • Save runscanner.exe to your desktop and double-click it to run it.
  • Once it starts, select Expert Mode and click Ok
  • When the main program opens, click on the Scan Computer button at the top, be patient it may take a few moments.
  • Once that's done click on the Save run file button at the top and when the save dialogue box opens, save the file as runlog and save it to your desktop.
  • Now right-click on the runlog.run file located on your desktop and highlight Send To and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
  • Please attach the runlog.zip file you just created to your next post.
