What to uncheck and what not

Can you remove File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\i2omgmt.sys?

Simple answer: no - as long as we are talking about these entries...They have always existed. Only Autoruns prior to v8.72 did not list them, because inside the registry the image path is not specified. "Image path" simply means the foldername plus the filename where the file is located.

The fact that Autoruns v8.72 displays these driver entries does not qualify them for deletion.

A valid driver entry does not necessarily have to include a valid image path. If there is none, then Windows will assume the default driver path which is "%Systemroot%\system32\drivers" plus filename.

Thanks for your help, Quietman. Reason I put three of those in bold is because at another forum several months ago, I think Geeks To Go, a HJT specialist told me to use OTMoveIt on:

DarkSpy File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\DarkSpy.sys

and

rrSpy File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\rrSpy.sys

It seems like these would be rogue and okay to remove, since both have the word "SPY" in them, i.e., spyware, but I guess I'll just leave them, since that's your recommendation, which I value highly, of course.

Thanks,

Jeff

Then you should follow that advice.

I was not saying not to remove anything. I wanted to bring to your attention the recommendations provided by those experts involved with explaining Autoruns usage. They basically are advising not to go arbitrarily deleting every entry where it says file not found.

rrSpy.sys is related to MultiMon by Resplendence according to this link.

spydetector.sys is related to Spyware Process Detector by Resplendence according to this link.

I can found no information on DarkSpy.sys so I would probably fix that entry.
