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.
