Hope I am doing this correctly...I am following the directions for using autoruns because I have a LOT of stuff that autostarts - the very first one is not found in your startup directory (although it is in the file directory) - so I'm posting what I know here. However, I do not know if it is a needed file (guess I'll leave it checked).

Filename: rdpclip.exe
Registry Value Name: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\Wds\rdpwd\StartupPrograms
Command: (I don't know what this means)
File Location: c:\windows\system32\rdpclip.exe
Description: RDP Clip Monitor
Status: ???

You should've just searched on Google.
Anyway here's a site I found with info about rdpclip.exe.

rdpclip.exe is the main executable for File Copy. It is provides function for Terminal Services server that allows you to copy and paste between server and client. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

I don't have that entry in startup for some reason.
