Hey, new here and rarely ever have much pc trouble but I realized the past few days I've been getting a strange error "sttray64.exe - bad image". I figured it was just something having an issue when windows 10 tried to install some updates and didn't think much of it because I've been working so much and had no other issues since seeing it. Today however I tried to call someone on skype and it started crashing immediately and so I googled some info on it. One of the fixes was to update your graphics drivers which I then tried to do. So the process starts and then just fails. I've tried clean installs, express and custom. So since I've been sick I figured I'd deal with it later and play a game of League of Legends with friends. So we get in game and now after trying to update my drivers I'm running 5-10 fps when I'm normally 100+. So I opened task manager and league is now running at like 80-98% cpu. So idk what's really going on but things kinda went 0-100 real quick =(.

sttray64.exe is actually installed with your audio chip but it's not necessary for it to run at startup.

Let's see if you have it running.


Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as Autoruns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:


Paste content of Autoruns.txt file into your next reply.
