Hello!

I've been having a lot of problems with my computer at start up, and with it randomly turning off and then not starting back up. When I stumbled across your program to check the autoruns at startup, I decided to give it a try to see if something in there might be causing some of my issues.

There are a few files/programs listed in there that show an image path of "File Not Found".

I can only find one of these files in searching the database, and it showed a yes. The file name for this one is rdpclip. Could this be part of my issue? If so, how would I go about correcting the problem?

The other missing files I can not find in the database. I was hoping someone could help me figure out if they are critical, and if so, how to get them back. These files are:

ipinip.sys , with a description as IP in IP tunnel driver

nwinkflt.sys , description IPX traffic filter driver

nwinkfwd.sys , IPX traffic forwarder driver

symim.sys , no description but listed two separate times with symim and symimmp for the title

Thank you!

All of those drivers are legitimate and should not be removed.

I wasn't intending to remove them. I have been having major issues with windows. All files are listed with a path of "file not found". Since many issues seems to be at start up or restart, I was looking to see if this could be my issue and how to fix it.

If you are having startup and maybe infection problems, please post in the Malware area so that the Experts can assist you -

EDIT - This applies more if you are not sure of any items to remove and how to identify these -

File not found in Autoruns means that the item is meant to autostart, but the referenced file can not be located. So, the item will not autostart. Also, Autoruns will not be able to display additional details about the item that was meant to autostart.
You should not delete those "File Not Found" entries unless you know exactly what removing these entries may do.
Although the referenced files can not be located, certain registry entries may be there in the expectation that perhaps someday the functionality will be required.
