My PC's operating System is Windows XP Home Edition SP3 and kept up to date using Windows Update. I use Comodo CIS v3.9 and Spywareblaster as real time protection and have SAS and MBAM used on demand as malware scanners.
I use Autoruns in conjunction with the Startup list here to keep my PC free of unneccessary programs at start-up. I noticed while scanning with Autoruns in the Winlogon section that there was an entry called SAS WINLOGON with a file name called saswinlo.dll. As I only use SAS on demand I am not sure why it should need to be attached to the Winlogon directory.
My question therefore is should it be there or is it safe to uncheck this box. Thanks in advance for any advise / help offered.

Even though it isn't really loading at startup or providing realtime protection I do not believe you can undo that. Every time I unchecked it in the program I use for controlling startups, it comes right back as checked the next time I look. It is not really loading anything and it does not use any system resources and when I checked it out long ago, I found it could not be undone, it is just part of the program.

If I remember correctly, it seems like something I read when researching that said it needed to be there for SAS to work correctly when removing problems and that is why it cannot be undone, but I could be wrong about that.
