I've recently uninstalled my webcam but I've noticed that one of the exe files, PAStiSvc.exe was still there and running every startup. I need help with the safe removal of this exe.

Thanks.

Go to Run

Type "msconfig"

Go to the "Startup" tab

Find your file and uncheck it.
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.

You could try using the startup section of programs like Spybot or Autoruns, seems like it should show up in one of those

You could try looking in services...as for removal, if you've already used the proper uninstall procedures and it's still on the system...just do a search and delete the corresponding file and registry entry.

Or you could use Autoruns, as previously suggested...looking at the Logon, Drivers, and Services tabs only.

Go to Run

Type "msconfig"

Go to the "Startup" tab

Find your file and uncheck it.


Msconfig should not be used as startup-manager. Instead use as suggested or when you have windows defender, you can manage start up items from there

search for the exe file and manually delete it

I know you're out there, I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world ... without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Okay, I've disabled the STI Simulator in Services and stopped the exe. I'll find the exe later.

Which registry entry do I remove? And should I still use Autoruns?
