I'm trying to find an msconfig type tool for remote startup process management. I don't want to use remote registry or disturb the user, it should be a background process.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what you are looking for...but Msconfig is a troubleshooting tool, not a startup manager...even though many try to use if for that purpose.

 

If you want to manage startups...Autoruns for Windows would be the tool I suggest.

 

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

Doesn't work on remote machines. This is for troubleshooting by the way... (what I'm looking for)

Do you plan on making the user install it? How are you going to access it? Will the computer be on the same network as you, on another network?

The user cannot install anything, I am the domain administrator.

 

Just looking for a suitable tool.

On how many computers will you deploy that tool? Our RAT at work is RemotelyAnywhere and it offers a bunch of options, but I don't know if it offers startup management. I can check tomorrow and let you know.

It's such a shame Autorunsc doesn't work on remote machines. Such a shame.

I already have VNC on my network, I don't want to disturb the users with this.

I know, but RemotlyAnywhere doesn't distract the user or launch a process except if you launch a remote control session. It offers a bunch of remote management features, hence why its a full RAT suite. I'll check tomorrow the options I have and I'll let you know.

Thanks for your input Aura.

 

You came up with the best part if it off the bat Louis. If I run Autorunsc via PsExec I can get it all in a terminal.

 

Thanks mate :thumbup2:

And the best is that you can most likely automate that process via a batch script too, good job! :P
