Autoruns is a very good startup manager.
If you come across a suspicious file in Autoruns, search the name using Google, BC's File Database
, File Research Center
or the Process ID Database
If you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan
. In the "File to upload & scan
" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.
