Status Key

Each entry in the database will have a Status assigned to it. The key to this status is the following:

  • Y - This status flag means that this entry should be left alone and be allowed to run as if it is unchecked it may break the functionality or use of a particular program.
  • N - This status flag means it is unnecessary to run this program automatically when Windows starts as you can run it manually when necessary.
  • U - This status flag means it is up to you whether or not you feel this program needs to run automatically.
  • X - This status flags means the item should definitely not start up automatically. Items that have this flag are generally malware such as viruses, trojans, hijackers, spyware but could also be programs that are not desirable to run on your computer.
  • ? - This status flag means the status of this entry is unknown at this time and more research is necessary.
If you require assistance in removing one of these files you can ask us in the Startup Database Forum.
Disclaimer
It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
