The command is CNYHKey.exe the manufacture is creative, the startup item is Creative Multimedia Driver, the location is HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Their doesn't seem to be much info about this on the web or on here so maybe somone can enlighten me as to what this does and if I really knead it to run at startup.

Here is another one as well that is not in bleeps list at all. Command: LchDrvKey.exe Startup Item:LchDrvKey Manufacturer: Unknown :huh: Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This one has me a little frazzled I'm 99% sure it's nothing malicious but whats up with the lack of info on this one.

cnyhkey.exe is a process belonging to Chicony keyboards and provides additional functions for these pieces of hardware. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems

CNYHKey.exe is a Creative Wireless Mouse and/or Keyboard application. If you remove this your wireless mouse/keyboard may stop working or you may lose extra features.

C:\Windows\LchDrvKey.exe also appears to be a Creative installed application. It is packed with Armadillo and has no manufacturer signatures which is a little odd for mainstream software firms. Also I found VirusTotal scan result for the file : http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/f58c781...8d87-1251678602
