    Adaptive Server Anywhere - [varies]
  • Filename
  • Command
    %Programfiles%\sybase\sql anywhere 8\win32\dbsrv8.exe
  • Description
    This file is the main executable for Sybase's Adaptive Server Anywhere version 8, also known as sql anywhere, intended for use in a server client setup.  Given that, please check with the database manager about whether this service needs to run at startup.  Note that the database is on the server, or should be to avoid file corruption.  There are ways to start the file manually, but that would have to be set by the one managing the database and server in question.  If you are NOT in a client server environment, this is not the correct version of the software to use for database management.

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.
