I am a newbie and trying to help out my slow computer. (Window XP) I am using the autoruns tool and have a question about an entry I found (explorer.exe). I searched your database for the entry and it has pages of options and all of the entries seem undesirable. My problem: I can't find one exactly like mine. (Or I don't know what I'm doing, which is a very real possibility).
This is my entry:
explorer.exe Windows Explorer Microsoft Corporation c:\windows\explorer.exe
It seems to me that the name and the file name are exactly the same and that option doesn't seem to be listed in the database. If this is a legitimate file, then it seems to indicate it isn't supposed to be in the startup list unless it was put there manually. Can anyone educate me, please?
