  • Description

    Installed with various versions of Sonic's Roxio Creator which is preinstalled on some computers.  This program is the Cine Player monitor.  When a movie disc is put in the DVD drive, it will start the Cine Player.  This startup should be disabled as having autoruns enabled is a security risk.

    File paths will vary depending on specific Roxio software.

    Some samples:

    %programfiles%\roxio 2010\5.0\CPMonitor.exe
    %programfiles%\Roxio Creator 2009 Ultimate\5.0\CPMonitor.exe
    %programfiles%\Roxio 2011\5.0\CPMonitor.exe

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
