I am using Autoruns by copying a file name, pasting it into the search box of Bleeping Database search and I get the result that the file info cannot be found. Have done this several times with commonly known file names. Clearly I am doing something wrong. I am a new user (clearly). Can someone please help me?

We do not have all the startups that exist in our database unfortunately. If there are particular ones you are unsure of, let us know and we will try to offer assistance.

This is my issue as well. I have taken several days attempting to learn how to do what I can before asking you for help, but I can go no further.

Over 100 programs launch at start up, and it seems even the most obvious programs aren't able to be found. A few do come up, but the first 20 or so I tried did not.


I bought a  refurbished lap top from newegg back in September. I'm a journalist with a hot topic and have suspected my entire system has been hijacked the whole time. It seems like the more I search, the less I find.


There's remote access everything all through my computer. I'm a party of 1 - want my machine locked down with no one else able to access it via any network. 

Please advise where and what to post to get this party started - months of work have been wasted from this issue, and it's exhausted me. I have what I need and am ready to wipe my entire system and reinstall windows from a disk I trust, but this problems a beast and if anyone wants to look it over and maybe help me figure out who or what did this, that's an option.
