Dear BleepingComputer Forum,

Software - hp - 2009.11.15

Start-up items

I would be very grateful if you can tell me, which items are not essential to be running and hence can be disabled by using StartupCPL.

  • Autorun Eater
  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware [reboot]
  • Outpost Feedback
  • Outpost Monitor
  • Symantec NetDriverMonitor

Thanking you.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr Manilka,

In my opinion all of these listed items should be running at startup.

Autorun Eater is a program to disinfect removable disks like USB pen drive from infected autorun.inf files. If you already have a good antivirus product then you do not really need this program. But if you use a lot of USB pen drives from friends and colleagues then you should leave it running.

Two Outpost programs are necessary for the Outpost firewall. The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a good program, keep it running. From the entry it appears that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware found some malware and it requires to reboot in order to clean up the malware files. The last process is needed for the LiveUpdate component of some Symantec software you have on your computer.
